I had run MBAM twice before contacting you,,,as well as eset scanner ETC.
i am really grateful for your help but am at a training day for MND scotland tomorrow as a volunteer and short on time for fixing this so decided to put it to a local techy ( a wee guy not pc world lol).
I dont understand this virus thing at all... I know it wasn't affecting IE and bing as curiosity got the better of me & I tried it....it definitely latched onto google chrome as that was my default browser.
If I find out anything from the techy bloke I can let you know as it may come in handy for someone else xx
