Is his a Virus?

Something has got into my machine and filled in all the little radio knobs
in all my 'click to choose' icons with a black or dark red tiny rectangles.
Where there should be ticks on my toolbar menu there are tiny pictures of a
jack plane (representing a tool I suppose) This is very annoying. Does
anyone know what it is and how to get rid of it?

Hi Quilljar,
It looks as though you might have a virus. A couple of recent posts might help you a lot and save a lot of writing. They were by CutNpaste on Monday 24.01.2005 and by Analyst02 on Tuesday 25.01.2005. There were a lot of references to malware and in particular 3 websites recommended by Nellie2 which will check your machine online. I'd call them up if I were you and have a read.

Thanks for your tip and reassurance. I ran Adaware and it came up with one malware entry. I had never heard this word before. Anyway it got rid of it.

That's the last time I let my 40 yr old son use my machine unsupervised!
