Speaking to my Brother regarding the problem of his PC switching itself on in the middle of the night.

He thinks this may have started happening since an install of Kazza, is this a problem that could have been caused by this program or may it be something else entirely?

Thanks in advance.

most pcs have a setting to restore the pc on modem ring - switch this off in the bios.

Most likely an Ad-Aware job, to get rid of spy-ware or it could be a Trojan

If it is totally off then a Trojan is unlikely but something in the BIOS or your Network card setings could be causing that.

Anyway regarding Kazza, see the post on here about opinions.

It contains spyware and viruses and exploits, so go to click here and click here

Also try click here for adanced advice on securing your computer.

On the above site get a firewall and download and Run a virus scanner and an online trendmicro scanner.

Good luck.
