  technotwat 00:16 04 Apr 2010

Just had a warning come up on a laptop from somewhere called "Security Tool" saying the computer is infected with a worm and numerous other nasties, this thing appears to have taken control of the computer to the extent cant do anything with it. The Laptop is running Advast free anti virus and also Norton Internet security. Has anyone else had this come up and if so how did they reslove the problem. Any help greatly apprecicated.
