[COLOR=purple]To All Who May Read This,
I know this is not the correct section to post this message but, I have been a real "dim light bulb" for the past few days.
I was having problems with a reappearing alert that the computer had a virus but it was deleted automatically. This happened every 15 min. non-stop for the past 4 days.
I had a full days chat session with the tech. support people of my anti-virus program, running ALL kinds of scans, deleting files and such with NO RESULT.
Determined to resolve this dilemma and abate the problem, I finally phoned a tech and was told AT LAST that... "There is nothing wrong with your computer." and my anti-virus program is, " working quite effectivelly.".
The problem, I was informed, was an adware or spyware programme which was trying to infect the computer with the virus [ QHosts - 18lhosts ] every 15 min. and the anti-virus was deleting it every time therefore, when The computer was scanned... no problem... no virus.
Mind you, this call cost over $60.00 plus interest on the credit card.
His solution... Get two Freeware Downloads from the net, install and run them. Keep them updated and you should be OK.
So in addition to the 1 I paid for, I now have 2 more and guess what... the alert stopped after running the first I downloaded
So the moral of the story is: THINK BEFORE YOU LEAP!
Anyone interested in the names of the programs can contact me thru this site.
