Kid’s computer gets a virus

It’s that bloody Malware Antivirus fake virus detection software that keeps popping up warnings that you’ve got a virus but in fact it’s the software that’s the virus. tries to get you to pay for some fake software to remove it (which does nothing).

SpyBot S&D has got rid of most of it but there’s one thing it cannot get rid off so I am burning a copy of Ubuntu to a DVD. Then I’ll boot his PC from that and see if I can delete the offending program from his hard drive.

I waste more time than I like fixing this sort of crap. Bloody computers!
