  1. Yeah, I saw that somewhere too, That is the best news ever.
  2. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that DjLizard has been on here recently. Glad to see him back.
  3. The East coast of America is certainly having it's share of problems. Stay safe everyone affected.
  4. Thanks James. I have now changed my mind about wanting to try it.
  5. Has anyone tried it yet?
  6. You've gotta love being able to quote song lyrics. :D
  7. Wow, I must admit I have not looked in for a while, but now that I have, I have to say this looks great.
  8. Sorry, it was late, I always tend to get carried away and stay up late when working on a computer because I like to get them back to the owner as soon as possible. If I had waited until today to read your post I would of got the joke.
  9. Does this seem a bit strange to anyone else? Mindboggling! :o Is it strange? It happens to me all the time with loads of people asking for help on Facebook. She is actually a regular too, and one of the only ones that I don't charge to get it sorted. She is a single mum in her thirties with 5 kids, her husband died about 3 or 4 years ago, I just don't have the heart to charge her.
  10. Finally got a chance to try this tonight. A neighbour popped up on Facebook chat asking for help because her laptop was claiming to be infected, and she couldn't get on the internet any more. I told her to bring it over, sure enough it was infected, with a rogue anti-virus, I think it was called Windows 7 Anti-Virus or something like that. It wouldn't let me run MBAM, so rather than mess around trying things, I downloaded Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper Beta , booted from it and it found 3 severe/high alert threats that it dealt with. Once it restarted I installed MBAM, SAS and avast using a cd that I burnt in May, so it has old definitions on it, but they still found a lot things to delete. Tomorrow I will connect it to the internet, update the definitions and then scan again. The main thing is though, Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper Beta got me to a stage that the computer was more usable.
  11. It wasn't a case of hopefully someone will get their computer infected soon, that is a certainty. It is more a case of hopefully they will bring it to me to sort out.
  12. Hopefully the situation will arise for one of us soon then so that we can report back on it.
  13. Did you actually use it to try to start an infected PC as well? I'm still waiting for a situation like that to come up.
  14. I use CCleaner, it don't get much easier than opening CCleaner, clicking Tools, clicking Startup then right clicking an entry followed by clicking Disable.
  15. Never heard of this until today, could be worth keeping an eye on. http://connect.micro...m/systemsweeper
  16. Thanks James, I'll pass that information on.
  17. That did make me wonder why you had mentioned Comodo in the first place actually. Thanks gUiTaR_mIkE, that gives me some things to look at. --- I have mentioned http://www.clamxav.com/ to him, because reading around made it seem like a good one. (This all takes me back to about 12 years ago when I wasn't too clued up on Windows security and would spend ages searching, reading and trying stuff)
  18. He had Sophos installed and that was what found 2 trojans, but couldn't delete them. I'll see how he gets on with iAntiVirus, then perhaps get him to give Comodo a try.
  19. Is anybody here a mac user, or does anybody have any knowledge of macs? Mainly what I am after is some information as to a good anti virus program for macs, googling it leaves me none the wiser, although I have just recommended PC Tools iAntiVirus to someone.
  20. I'm so glad the weekend is finally here, need some me time, not work time.
  21. I've not posted one for a while, so here goes.
  22. I'm not sure it is laid out as I would like it to be. I would prefer to see 'Scan the system', 'Scan files or folders' and 'Immunize the system' in the top section and 'News', 'Donate' and 'Get help' in the lower section. Actually I have just noticed that 'Donate' is in the lower section as well. Not sure why they would add to the clutter in such a way. I don't think I will be using it when it is out of beta, I'll stick with MBAM and SAS which I have come to trust a lot.
  23. Oops, bit late then but Happy Birthday, hope you had a good one.
  24. hahaha I totally agree with that, they are kinda lost down there. Surely the links could be on every forum page, up there with 'Lunarsoft Home, Wiki, Downloads News, Donate and Contact Us'
