You really seem to know what you're talking about and I really appreciate your help in the last email, but I'm so so lost here. I'm usually a little more used to linux and I was hoping you could give me an exact step by step list of guided detailed instructions for dummies if it's not too much trouble for you, perhaps something like
1. do this
2. do that
3. do this
and sort of tell me exactly where things come from and where things go and how to do them... I Know... and I'm sorry.

What I suppose I will try to do is set up clamav portable version in windows 10 and then just download the virus signatures (are there official and unofficial ones just like on linux?) and then just move them over to the needed computer and then run a full (all encompassing scan) (however I would really like to know how to just scan only one folder or directory if possible as well) 
the thing is that I have no idea how to do this. I understand some of the things you said in the previous email but it's like staring into the abyss for me. I doubt I will ever figure this out without your help, since there's no GUI (which I'm shocked isn't included honestly, considering the inexperienced stereotype of the typical windows user, not to insult those who don't fit into that stereotype- which is ironic considering how much I fail just because I'm slightly better at linux haha) (to be honest I've seen the linux gui "ClamTK" and it's great, I don't know why that didn't become popular, update button- scan where you want, all the features.)

What I'm asking is embarrassingly silly, but I need you to explain this to me as if I was just recovering from very minor head trauma or I promise you this just isn't gonna happen for me... O_O  please help!
