Buggies in the techno-wotsits!!
« on: October 03, 2016, 08:16:38 AM »
Some of you might have seen my panicky posts on FB yesterday - I couldn't get in to the forum (disaster!) and since the nasty virus thingy only reared it's ugly head when I tried to get on FPAR forum, I assumed that was where the problem was - I was WRONG  :-\  :-X!
After 12 hours intensive surgery, my PC (the infected patient) was finally healed and scrubbed clean.
So I am happily available for any required Thank You cards and send my apologies for any fuss and bother I may have caused   :o

On a more serious note - the virus was something called RepairImage which just popped up from nowhere - it was blocked by my pop-up blocker but I was given the option to 'Allow Once' and since I was trying to get on FPAR ( a trusted site) I foolishly said OK.
One massive clean-up later, the moral of the story is NEVER allow a blocked pop-up.
Hope this helps xxx
