Hi all, Help please. I have lost control of my mouse " It does not respond " I have been told that I have probably picked up a Virus. My computer has no Anti Virus Software on it. Can I recify the problem by intalling Norton Anti Virus 2003 Will that work or can someone offer some assistance. Best Regards. Welshdio.
Yeh, Checked that its all plugged in and all that and that seems OK. I opened up a message and it all went wrong. All sorts of Icons and pages flashed up on screen. I have now bought Norton AV but have not yet installed it. Will that sort it out do you think ?
Norton AV will fix most things but the virus may compromise the installation. Norton recommend against installing the product to fix a virus. My recommendation would be to fix the virus first using one of the methods above, then install Norton AV when your system is 'clean'.
Then run Liveupdate to get the latest virus definition files and repeat at least every week.
Yeh I tried the "Alive Mouse" I have a mate of his locked up in the shed so I gave him his chance of freedom. Alas it was the same so hes gone back to the shed. I think that the problem is that the virus attacked the driver. Will keep you all informed.
Hi all, Went home last night and after some Jiggerdy Pokery managed to get on to the net. Downloaded PC-Cillin and that did find a virus. Dont ask me what is was cos I just deleted it without making a note. Re connected mousey and it looks like I am OK. Will install Norton AV 2003 as a must as soon a I get it. Thanks for everyone help.
