Re: I think I got a virus? NEED HELP
Not a virus. It sounds like there was something in your trash can that should not have been there (and has referenced itself as your home directory?), but I'm darned if I know what it could have been.
Anyone got any ideas? It's not the "user's Home" icon from the desktop, as that doesn't go into the trash; and it's not a symbolic link as those just delete the link and not the link's target.
I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
