Yesterday, a client of mine rang me and said he's clicked on the greeting card email - the scam that's going round at the moment, and he clicked on the link. Needless to say, AntiVirus XP downloaded itself, and the fake antivirus program popped up with 672 fake 'infections' found. This then tries to dial-up (he uses a SpeedTouch 330) every two minutes. I tried to remove it by following the instructions on 2-spyware.com, so I went into Safe Mode. The mouse refused to work (it's a wireless mouse) when attempting to go into Safe Mode, so I installed USB mouse, and even that didn't work. Is this a side-effect of Antivirus XP?
