This is not so much a call for help as advice in case your computer becomes infected by Plus-HD-4.8.

This is prob already known to IT boffins but for dummies such as me it can be very annoying.

It's not so much a virus as a PUP. (boffin-speak)

Evidently it can be a danger as it allows nasties and other 'orrible things to invade your setup.

First signs seems to be uncalled-for ads that pop up out of nowhere and certain words highlighted and underlined followed by a green circle with a diagonal arrow coming out of it.

I got rid of it by going into Control Panel and uninstalling it. IE/Firefox and any other system should also be checked.

Best to Google "Plus-HD-4.8" and read about it.

Ned or others might have something more to add.

So that's what it's called @Gimme. I got rid of it too by Googling..... it came with the new operating system but is now a distant memory thank goodness.
