  1. That's a rather blurry picture but it looks suspiciously like one of those warnings from a fake security product that will scam you into paying $$$$ for it when there is no real problem.

    Don't be fooled. Try the free Dr. Web CureIt. Instructions to use it here: http://www.tech-pro.net/help-i-have-a-virus.html (from my day job website.) It will sort you out if you really have malware.

  3. Hi Paul, yes it is proving to be a very "fun" time...makes me almost want to go out and get a Mac.

  4. Good afternoon Julian, sorry for the quality of the picture. I did go to website that you mentioned but this spy-ware will not let me run anything that remotely looks like anti spy-ware program. I have tried to change the name as I did once in the past and it fooled the spy-ware...not this time. Even system restore is see's as a threat....and it is if I can use it. Well it's time for dinner and movie time with my XYL. I will then look at plan B...when I figure out what it is.

  6. Good morning Martin, thanks very much for the link. I checked it out and it s very interesting how these virus's work. I was able to rid myself of the virus with outside help last night. But I will bookmark this link and use it for other info in the future. Thanks again.
