This is a bit old hat now. This one was sorted out Months ago. It's part of the operating system and not a virus.

Thanks for that. I thought I kept up-to date with all the threads on this Forum but obviously missed this one.

Thanks and regards to all

Anyone noticed the little Teddy beside the setupdebug file in Windows. Could be Northamuk's Teddy escaped.
