Unsure of Microsoft Spynet



Daughter has been getting pop ups on her lappy (Vista) (thousands of miles away, so can only guess as to the exact nature). The popup reports something about a subscription to M$ Spynet who want money, to which she has never subscribed, and knows nothing about it. IIRC I set up the security for her some time back, and there was no M$ security installed by me. She also gets a windoze defender pop-up reporting powerreg as a potential issue. I'm not familiar with that either, should she be worried? She'll be here in a week, so I can then give it the once over then, but, in the meantime.....

As for PowerReg, it seems like it might be a dodgy resident....

You're going to have some work to do...! ;)
