This is a fantastic forum. I have just fixed my sons computer using info from these posts. You all are fantastic!

Windows Vista and VirusProtectPro! What a combination. :thumbsup:

He bought this system about 4 months ago and it's been infected twice. Not sure what they are doing. But, I suspect they are clicking on some popup that is telling them they have to download another codex. Funny how people just click those things. :flowers:

Anyhow, his is now back up and running. Thanks to y'all.

Wish I could get them to change to Linux. I've been using it for 8 months now and NO PROBLEMS!!! :D

Thanks much,
