My daughter E-mail to report that she whilst she was checking her Nat West account there came up an invitation 'Update Support' from 'www.trusteer.com. Thinking that it was NatWest[which I doubt] she clicked Yes

Now what has she dome - a scam I wager

Any opinions?

Having just posted the above I Googled for Trusteer Ii does seem to be genuine which begs the next question

Is there potential for conflict with installed security - in her case AVAST Free'?

as ithnyhng purporting to be froma bank tke great care!Trusteer Rapport is used by many of the bansand buildng societies nd is known to hog system reourcs. I have rmoved i from everal clients chines because of this. alrmingly in doing so you are taen to the Rapprt site whic asks "Is the software slowing down your computer" !!!

It may be a genuine update for this known problem however I`d check with the bank first because youcan bet ttsomeone is capab of producing Trusteer wbsite somewher o phishfor personal details.

Have used rapport, supplied by A&L, for years on all of my financial sites and it has behaved very well with no apparent 'hogging'of resources.
