Funny you should mention that, I made the mistake of getting an E Machine from Walmart once about 12 years ago. After about 90 days I took it out back of my garage and repaired it with an 8 pound sledge. No problems after that and I felt so much better.

I had the same thing happen to me just last week. A good cleaning took care of it.

Run Linux as your base system. Do all your internet surfing, downloading, and email via Linux, which is where you get 99% of viruses and maleware.

For your Windows only programs, Install Virtualbox (virtual machine) on Linux and then install your favorite edition of Windows on it. Run Windows the way you always do. No muss, no fuss. You don't have to mess with dual booting or trying to fight with Wine to make it work. Win-Win!

You can also use Virtualbox to install any other operating system you want to play with, such as OSX, any of dozens of varieties of Linux, etc. without worrying about messing stuff up, or having to use a second computer to experiment.
