G'Day everybody, impressive site.

Been hassle free with PC's for the last 15 odd years, until last week when the friend of my teenage daughter used my PC for school study (or at least so she says).

I was about to reformat my system when I found this place.

I'll be posting in the malware/hijack forums instead.

You guys to a great job, and have already given me a lot of hope.

Cheers and thanks again

Thanks guys. This one is going to be interesting. I had a system crash that I think damaged one of the malware files. System won't start without a heap of error messages relating to skuns.dat being a bad image. Googling skuns.dat is how I wound up here, so maybe something good will come of it.

Thanks again, and cheers
