A scan using Norton or whatever you use and then Malwarebytes is always useful. OK this time neither found anything but they have found minor stuff in the past. Usually found my Malwarebytes. We only use the free version which seems fine for us but do buy anti virus protection in the summer when it is cheaper than in January ;)

Its not about how useful a scan is.. its about posting ill-informed statements that everybody should do a scan as if there is some terrible virus about to strike when its a simple coding issue. And if your PC is set up correctly there is never any need to do a manual scan anyway.

Tracking has been updated this morning.

Maybe someone at T Towers switched off the T tracking machine in error?
I'd blame that Matt! Always getting it wrong! :lol:

I was more concerned with a £100+ purchase! Showing now and saves a lengthy, lengthy claim!

Not everyone is a computer expert. If you click on a link and something downloads onto your PC or laptop most people will have concerns

It didnt actually download anything onto anyones PC/Laptop, most people would know to ignore such a situation and/or to google the potential problem hence the apparent lack of concerned responses/posts on this thread

There are those who agree with and those who are convinced to agree with and I fall into neither of those categories ....
