Hi I went to an internet cafe yesterday and normally I used it to surf the web etc.However,when I use it,there is an error message saying that an unknown .dll is missing.However through research,I found out that the missing .dll file is an trojan and I found about some chinese hijacker files,a few trojans and some adware in it.I have told the owner about it and she does not seem to care about it.The same has been found on the other computers too.What should I do?

Do you mean on the computers there at the cafe, or did it infect your laptop? Either way I doubt its done intentionally by the cafe, that would put them out of business pretty quick once the word got out. There is not really anything more you can do, you informed the owner so its their problem now.

its just like school computers, no matter how safe you try to keep them students/users will infect them.

Bite your tongue! My student computers are free from all forms of infection (except the students themselves).

Not in the America I live in. You obviously haven't learned to respect authority.

To go on-topic again, there is a feature in the windows firewall (or atleast on mine), that is named "no exceptions". It could be useful if you're having a lot of exceptions, like me. It even recommends you to do it, when you are at public places.
You should always have a good firewall to protect you from all the threats on the internet.
