    I got infected with a Malware virus called system tools the other day. It allowed me to use the internet but locked all microsoft programmes. It tells you that you have lots of viruses in the system and then wants money to get rid of them none of which works. Anyay sussing out that it was some kind of scam I Googled it and found loads of info and blogs on how to get rid of it.

    One of the sites that came up gave me an extensive instructions that I printed out and then I SPENT ABOUT 3 HRS GOING THROUGH THE PROCEDURE, DOWNLOADING A COUPLE OF BITS OF FREE SOFTWARE ON THE WAY.

    I did have the sense to copy all data files onto my external hard drive before starting as I had lost some stuff from the laptop by the time I had finished
