My son has a problem with his pc. A program which nhe has not installed or downloaded alled Virus lab 2008 or 2009 keep popping up and slows down his pc. He cannot get direct to any web site he types in and it is annoying him. He is out of work at moment and wonders if there is any free way of gettin rid of this annoying thing.
Also can anyone tell me what it is ?? virus trojan hi jacker or what ?

I have downloaded it and will put it on memory stick to install on sons pc tomorrow when he's in. If it finds anything (and I am betting it will) will it remove them or wil it ask for a payment for the software?. also is it better to remove anything found rather than it be Quarantined ??
Will let you know how we got on tomorrow when we do it and thanks again for the help.
