I am posting here at the advice of those present on the introduce yourself section.
Very briefly, for some time I have been blocked from opening attachments and have received messages telling me that they are a virus. Accompanying this is the small red and white shield that looks as if its linked to Windows 7 security centre or something similar. The same problem has occurred when my wife tries to access attachments from work. In all cases we are happy that there is no virus, my wife's are coming from local government computers.
Today my pc has decided to stop me opening MS word docs that were fine over the weekend. All those files have an orange icon now.
I started a thread on the Forum attached to PC advisor magazine and ultimately the suggestion was to use Combofix.
At this point I have hesitated as I have been told that Combofix is powerful and could cause issues .
I am unable post post a link to that forum for some reason. I can copy it but it won't paste here
That's the typed version.
It appears that the Pc is slowly being overtaken
Your help would be appreciated.
Thank you, Matt
