PC Fix

Popped over to Paul and Sue’s to attempt to fix Sue’s PC. For no reason at all, it had started to pop-up warning messages about viruses and spyware attacking her machine. No matter what they tried, they couldn’t get the message to stop appearing.

What was interesting was, that it wasn’t their normal AV program that was giving the messages. Hhhhmmm… I suspect a Trojan of some kind.

After running various tests and downloading a tool that was supposed to fix-it – it didn’t make any difference! But I was lucky enough to find some instructions on the ‘net on how to remove it manually.

Success! It’s now working fine.
