Default Re: Warning, virus!

Crap. I let my niece go on one of my workstations today. She came runnin' to me. This is what I got.....



I am doing a couple of scans on my network as we speak. This might be a flaw that you where talking about.

Good idea, for you, with your very keen interest in IT, it must seem good then, the more the merrier I reckon.

I have AVG, "cannot repair" probably means it's in their vault, click on "open vault", have you looked?, you can also go to their site, find their list of viruses, & d/load a patch to get rid, good luck, can't you put a software lock on your PC, or just not let her, or anybody use it, tell them to get one of their own, females & computers, grrrr, like oil & water!, let me know how you get on, 'luck.

Thanks for your appreciative remarks, as the old TV cop series used to say; "Take care out there" the older members will remember this.

I just did. It's gone. I've done about 8 netword scans to make sure the network is rid of the trojan.

They came to visit, and she needed to go on the internet. Mine aswell let her [She's 8]. Right now, the levels on the firewall is very high right now. I've blocked that workstation from the rest of my computer network.

Thanks again!
