For the last month or so at work my computer has been acting up - very slow, crashing every so often, lots of pop-ups, my homepage just suddenly changed...and so on.

It's frustrating but I just ignored these changes, mainly because I dont want to draw the pervy IT guy here at work on me.

Now I keep getting msgs from Microsoft Internet Explorer saying that my comp is infected with Spyware and that it could be tracking my credit card details, passwords, emails, etc (YIKES!) It's telling m to download something called Spyblocs.

When I started to that Spybot Search and Destroy, which is what we use here at work, popped up...so I aborted the scan.

Dont know what to do

Samsara, format it as I got one last month. Can't even change my wallpaper...what about yours?

Unfortunately, it's a call to the IT perve guy I think. Either that or you'll be spending a lot of time mucking around trying to fix it.

Just remind him to keep his hands off your hardware and software

Ok, I just downloaded Microsoft AntiSpyware and removed the Spyware from my comp.

Very proud of self.

Although, I still cant get my old homepage back and there are still pop-ups. Grrrr

Now, I'm all paranoid that I need to change my credit card and bank account details. I do all my banking on-line mainly from this computer...
