Some of you folks might remember reading a previous post of mine that told of an elderly friend who loves his computer but does not understand all he knows about it..
I was, and still am, constantly having to go over and clean it out and set his system up again and again..
Well this time was an unbelievable gigantic invasion of not one malware/virus , but 21 different ones..
YEP... <span class="ev_code_red"> 21</span> different attacks from just one innocent click on what he thought was a good thing.
It took me almost three hours to get his computer back to normal.
When I asked what he had done, of course he had no idea ... until I mentioned that he had not been using the programs I had installed in his computer... like AVG, Spybot, Ad-<span class="ev_code_red">A</span>ware.
He then remembered that he had clicked on a link that said to "upgrade" his protection with <span class="ev_code_red">"Ad Ware"</span>
Well to him, the "Ad-Ware" looked like the "Ad-<span class="ev_code_red">A</span>-ware" that I installed.. so he clicked on it and "Thar she blows... <span class="ev_code_red">BAM ! BAM ! BAM !</span>.. here came the malware and dangerous viruses..
So to all my friends on the forum, please take this "Heads-UP" as a friendly reminder to always look and read very carefully before clicking on anything on the web..
Things are not always what they seem to be...
Remember .. <span class="ev_code_blue">if you are not sure... DON'T......</span>
