I recently had a guy I know,come and update virus/firewall on my machine.
He told me that he/the machine located , and "sorted out", a virus on a disc I had,but he , or nobody else has explained to me what a virus is exactly, or what it does.
This nasty little sucker was TROJ_PPHUCKER.C
What in the name of jumping jelly fish does that mean and what would it have done to my computer had it gone undetected?
