I got home and found my flatmate about to throw the computer through the wall. Spylocked!!!!! *&*^%$%**%**^^*%*^$&^((*&T(*(*^(* is all I can say. Thanx for having the link to the removal program.

9:00pm Finished... It seems that he had more than one instance of malware... "The antivirus popups on pornsites are viruses, dude!!!" I wonder if he'll get it...

Welcome to BC!
I doubt that your roommate will "get it" until the computer is so botched by malware that it ceases to function, or until it takes six hours for HIM to clean it up.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
