    please be aware there is a nasty computer virus doing the rounds called(ukash metropolitan police)i had it yesterday,i think how it got in was by piggybacking on a update,my firewall asked permission while doing an update and like a fool i give it,then within five min's i was locked out of my computer and it was asking for £50 for a code to unlock me,the only way i get rid was by fireing up the puter in save mode with networking and running three virus killers and also manually removeing files,and then running a compleat system restore,hopfully its gone.
    this virus removes your firewall and renders your anti virus useless,partisions it self away from virus scan's,and lock's your screen on startup,nasty:Angry:
    please make sure you anti virus is up to date,and do not ignore your firewall:thumb:

    I think that may be because it has the HTTP:// bit in twice.
