My mam has a possible virus on here Dell laptop (vista) which seems to be blocking her from installing downloaded antivirus software, mainly blocking her passwords from being entered. I am sure I have seen previously on here about a bloke poss called steve who has a website that will scan your computer remotly and remove any viruses, is this the case and how can i find the website,
thanks

Or, perhaps your mum could do a System Restore to before the laptop was perhaps infected.

Most programmes remove them for you. Look for the prompts and follow them, it'll happen.
