I fear I've fallen for a computer scam, the sort along the lines of 'Pay us a shed-load of money to fix your machine'. Je suis une clot. :oops: I've texted Frog to let her know that I won't be around until this is sorted so won't be able to update her thread. :oops: If any of you have my email please don't send me anything because I won't be switching it on until I have the all-clear. Apparently I have been 'Trojaned'. We'll see, yes? DD

    Oh no DD? Is it one where they make you pay to get it back again? Oh dear hope you'll be able to get some help on that.

    Sadly, this is all too easily done DD. You're not the first to fall for it and you won't be the last. :( :?

    I have a thread somewhere on here in the archive on how to clear all unwanted Trojans and software not needed.
    Meantime Avast is the best for deleting them.
