Sneaky little blighter!

Despite having a good (and free download) virus checker on board and disabling automatic updates, Hubby detected a virus on my laptop that was slowing everything down.
It started with me deciding to housekeep my files as my hard drive was almost full, so it was obviously time to transfer my photos to a USB key.
However, even doing that, I didn’t free up a lot of space, so Hubby took over.

Oh gawd.
I had adverts running in the background, my machine badly needed defragging, and that’s when he discovered the virus. It had been isolated by the checker, but somehow I had missed the warning and it was taking up valuable room.
It has taken the better part of 6 HOURS to sort everything out and finally here I am.
