Me and Dh could prolly fix it but I think we live a distance from you.

misdee Mon 07-Mar-05 13:01:56

think mine is fixed, but the real test is when we restart the pc. havent dared do it (pc has been switched on since last night)

sparklymieow Mon 07-Mar-05 13:02:29

misdee Mon 07-Mar-05 13:03:19

Incidentally, from what I read last night, this particular virus is a bit like nits () in that it can reside in several files - if you miss one, it can then reinfect the entire PC again. Strongly recommend you do a virus sweep every day for a few days just to double check you got everything.

I'll post this to the other virus threads too.

Dell Inspirons are nice if you're after a laptop

They start at around £400 at the moment, depending on what spec you're after. You can bet your life though that once you've added a decent amount of memory in etc that it'll be nearer the £800-1000 mark! (at least whenever I spec them it always ends up around that figure!!)

Dell Inspirons

Hubby recently got the 8600c and it's a very sexy laptop. Am most jealous .

we got an excellent hardly used sony vaio from ebay about a month ago.

lou33 Tue 08-Mar-05 12:03:58

cost about £600, nearer to a thousand new

sorry YG. I got it from one of my other contacts.
my virus check came up clear. but i am getting popups saying something about activex being disabled.

really sorry to have killed yr pc

Bogwoppit Tue 08-Mar-05 13:29:22

oh & i'd recommend the vaio laptops - that's what I have ;)
