I sent an e-card to a friend who when she tried to open it got the message that her computer was infected with 7000 porn items blocking her computer. She could not get the message off the screen nor could she reboot so she paid £30 to the company to download a cleaner which then supposedly cleaned the computer. The lady in question is in her mid seventies and would not recognise porn if it was floating in her soup. Has she been the victim of a scam
thanks for your comment Gandalf. I all ways respect your opinion which corresponds with mine on this matter. I have advised her to download crap cleaner and ewido which I have myself found to be invaluable
I have tried regscrub xp which found 247 problems and after cleaning made my pc much much quicker. I then used regscrub xp for about 2 weeks without a fault. Then 1 day after cleaning I could not use system restore, help stuff and found my Xp to be in a right tiss. ( I had to reinstall )
My question is - if I use ccleaner do i have to be really carefull ? I use a file sharing site and play on line games like counter strike etc. Will ccleaner cause me problems if i am not carefull?
When i use regscrub xp, if i am honest, I am never really sure what it is doing !!!!
