Hi Broni: you helped me before when the kids infected my PC at home. Now it's my laptop - it just turned on the camera, told me I'd violated FBI laws (!), that I was being filed and recorded, and asked for cash. Lovely. Where do I start? Many thanks. Jimmy (Can't blame the kids for this one!) PS I am travelling till Monday night: bear with me on replying. I'll do exactly as you tell me - but it will take till then. Thanks.
