I wonder if there is anyone that can help me please?
A few weeks ago my husband clicked on a pop up saying we had been infected with a virus and we had to download this piece of software to get rid of it. To be fair to him, the pop up was very convincing, it looked like a windows shield with 4 colours in it. Anyway, it seems to have caused the following problems:
Firstly, he cannot access the internet at all from his profile. I can from mine but I cannot access my googlemail at all. System restore does not work no matter what date we try to go back to. When I try to perform a google search, it redirects me to "Gala Directory".
I have Virgin Media Security installed and performed a scan for viruses and spyware and it came up with a virus called "Exploit.Java.Gimsh.B" but it hasn't fixed the problem.
We are using Windows XP Home Edition.
I would be really grateful for any help.
Thank you :-)
