Warning !!!

There is a popup which you may experience whilst browsing the web that calls itself "WinFixer 2006" this is spyware and could cause a host of problems for your computer.

If you get a message talking about fixing your registry and downloading WinFixer 2006 do not respond - ie. do not click any buttons on the popup (including the 'X' button to close the popup window) instead, close the whole of Internet Explorer by clicking the 'X' in the top right-hand corner of the IE window.

If you have become infected with this spyware, there are programs which you can download to get rid of it.

More info: http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/winfixer.html
