How to fix mom's computer

Gina Trapani, like many others I imagine, spent the weekend doing the annual 'fix-Mom's-computer' thing. Unlike the others, however, she documented the steps she took to turn mom's malware-infested virus factory into a secure and stable computer that's likely to stay that way for awhile. If you don't know squat about computers and have been wondering why your PC is running progressively slower, her article is a good place to start. The comments below it contain a lot of useful tips as well.
