Thanks to those who have offered their suggestions. Ok, and thanks too, for the tip about the Mac, although it didn’t do much about the virus on my computer…
Here’s what I’ve done:
Firstly followed Closet Queen’s advice and tried a couple of the online virus scanners… but nothing was initially detected.
Then, I followed Stevieboy’s suggestion and checked out the support centre… Sorry mate, but I won’t be thanking you later, as it dodn’t offer anything that could have helped.
Chialintsai’s tip was next. I went to the control panel, then system settings, and disabled restore. After I restarted the computer,
I tried the online virus scanners that Closet Queen had suggested, and killed at least one virus, though it wasn’t in the same location as the original virus.
Then, I went back and re-enabled the restore. Since then, I’ve had no more virus warnings. So, the news is good, but my computer now seems to be running a little slower than before. Any more tips?
