One of the pesky little red boxes popped up and I saw it had filesbunker.com at the bottom. I googled it and there was an article about getting rid of it. It said it is a virus which slips in on the back of innocent downloads.

Here's another site regarding filesbunker, Remove Filesbunker.com pop-up virus (Removal Guide)
But can I trust the tip that appears beneath my last posting? I am getting suspicious of every offer!

I don't know how to do any of this stuff, Thrash even with the instructions. I am a writer of 70 and completely dumb with computers. I did uninstall a suspicious looking prog from my control panel but am sure that will not be enough

Yo Thrash

The cheeky bloody internet download malware even tried to do its stuff while I was downloading your fix! You fix whizzed through and then found something called something bull(?) and did its stuff and gave me a report of actions. So far no repetition. Your are a star mate. How can I reward you?

Post the scan results would be a good start Mate
Open the text file created by Adwcleaner,
Right click the body of it and click on Select All,
Right click again and click on Copy,
Open a new message here type here ya go,
Right click under that and click on Paste.

After the scan the scanner should of said you need to boot to clean your computer,
After logging back in a text file should of opened,
Which it should be on your desktop,

Exactly as you said, the text box opened and gave a list of stuff found and done, but I cannot find any ref to it on my desktop. Under As I just have a dozen Acer things and then two Adobe things. There is no reference at all to adwcleaner. Have I lost it?

Hi Where does it save files that are Run, not Saved? I've tried Google, but it only gives me instructions on how I change the save location. I've looked through the temporary folder, but my requested file isn't there. Thanks
