I've just joined TechSpot to try and solve my case of search engine redirect virus. I am a bit worried that I posted my question in the Malware forum but I can't see it there. I have spent about 2 hours typing it and would hate to lose it - what should I do? As for introducing myself I am fairly boring, LOL! I have Asperger's Syndrome so I can be literal to the point of awfulness (at least that is what my friends tell me) I studied computer science at university in the 1980s but I have been at sea without a rudder since the invention and proliferation of the GUI as I am one of those dinosaurs who liked the command line interface!
