So I know a little about computers,most Ive learned on my own. This one has me stumped. My father has a fairly new laptop and he pretty much knows nothing about computers. He can make it to FB and hotmail and thats about it.lol He has this warning that keeps popping up and it locks his computer and tells him to call a number. So I figure he has downloaded something that has a virus in it. I went over to his place the other day and ran a scan that showed no virus. I checked add on programs and there appeared to be nothing new there. Now a few days later its hit again.He says he hasn't downloaded anything so how is this imp still locking his laptop? Anyone deal with this before and how can I nix this for good?
