Went on Skype to send a note to a friend, when I closed a pop up saying new video message came up looked like part of Skype. Well two hours of removing junk with Revo and Add & Remove programs things seem Ok! Except for this nasty applet saying I must validate my Windows, needless to say I have not clicked on update now. How do I go about getting rid of it, I am thinking it is a form of ransom wear. I will not be using this laptop until early tomorrow, but will watch for any help that comes my way.
