Think i've been punished for not using anti virus software i finally re-installed AVG, never got to re-insatlling it after i sent my laptop back to TIME to be repaired and they wiped my hard disk! It then found seven assorted viruss and removed them! also had a look through Program Files and removed everything i didnt recognise. Now when i run AVG it comes up all clear, but looking at the Task Manger, there is always a back round program running called 'pup' so i close that everytime but every reboot it starts again. Also i seem to get an increasingly large number of popups even on reliable and stable sites which i have visited for years and got nothing. Also IE always seems to come up with DEBUG windows or somthing sayng various error messages! any general ideas? can i use a spyware tracker to try and get rid of 'pup'? anyone got any ideas? Also as my laptop is part of a wireless network and the Net connection is on the other computer i cant use somthing like ZoneAlarm because the free version doesnt support networks! and help there either? Thanks all
yeah that pup site looks the same, that smiliy ad is always one that comes up! i'm down loading Adaware now (ah how slow ISDN seems now!) and once i've done that i'll do search and destroy too! I'll keep you updated!
