Just to say thanks to ALL the people who have posted advice on the latest 3 viruses..:o)
Went to see father-in-law today. "I'm having a bit of a problem with the internet" he says. So I try and remember all that I've read on this site about them during the past week, disable restore, download MS upgrades, find he hasnt got a virus checker running (even though the machine says he has), download AVG with upgrades, get rid of virus, reboot. YES!!
I couldnt have done it without you guys & girls. Thanks, you're all brill!! ;o)
Don't forget [if he hasn't got one] to instasll a firewall such as the free version of ZoneAlarm click here;jsessionid=1HOGzuZzlLJ1Q16K5n1D2wNDBNc9srf1mb3rRRDIdr7RTbBHYV0F!-490251789!-1062696904!7551!7552!1015293934!-1062696903!7551!7552?lid=nav_za
Might be worth installing anyway. I don't run xp but from some of the threads I've read I understand the xp firewall only blocks incoming. ZA controls outgoing as well, so you decide which programs on your system can connect to the internet %-)
