    from before / earlier

    Hi,

    I wish to know if the use of 'from before' in the following sentence correct. This a sentence from an email where I decribed how I removed a virus infection from my computer.


    I had Lavasoft’s Ad-aware on the system from before. So I used it to scan the system; it found a few problem files and deleted them.


    Thanks,

    MG.

    Yup, it's fine, MG. It sounds very natural.
