While I don't know what it is that is causing the problem (probably a virus), this was quite funny to read. So thank you for making a rough day a bit better. I sincerely hope you get the problem fixed... may be a windows reinstall.

try a more robust antivirus program.

If you are using the freebie version...unfortunately it has it's limits. ESET or Norton are pretty highly recommended.

 

I have friends who have run into the same kind of problem. I reinstalled windows for them. They didn't want to buy the antivirus program commercial version.

Good Luck!

I had AVG AV Pro went down to free edition which has never let me down til

 

Now following reviews on antivirus programs I found BitDefender which seems to be being awarded everywhere. Being as miserly as i am ran there free online test low and behold 5 trojan-flood viruses. happy days :tooth:

 

my last 2 question (honest!) has anyone got BitDefender AntiVirus? And is it any good?

 

oh that free online Virus Scanner

Choice of AntiVirus program will depend on both your level of computer knowledge and whether or not you are willing to part with $$$.. If you really know what you are doing with your system try ESET. I have used it for two years now and not a single virus / trojan or malware has infected my system. I was a devotee of Norton previously. Norton is more of a mainstream program and it's GUI is quite intuitive.

 

Ya get what ya pay for or don't pay for.

 

cheers:)
