I am sorting a computer for a friend and each time he tries to log on he gets a message unable to log on due to "sasse" It's running xp ona dial up connection. I haven't clapped eyes on this yet and I'm just wondering if anyone has come accross something similar.

Are you sure it isn't 'Sasser'? That is a virus.

I have downloaded the fix from the site and will let you know how I get on with removing the virus. I will also get him to download the AVG app. Many thanks I will keep you informed. Al

I believe I have removed the virus by following the instructions as per web site. However I cannot now log on for some reason
