At around 8.30 last night, just as I was contemplating a bath and early night, my daughter declared that her laptop had some sort of virus.
Turns out she fell for the old pop-up virus alert which then got in past the antivirus etc.
I battled it until 1am, cleaning up, downloading new stuff etc but it was all in vain.
I brought it to work with me today and have had it chugging away next to me, reinstalling everything from scratch.
If I meet a virus writer today he had better watch out...
