well it worked.....and weirdly two minutes after I removed it my mothers phone rang and it was an asian callcenter (i presume, everyone I spoke to was called Richard and spoke with a heavy indian accent) telling me that my computer was full of viruses and they could help.
I ask: "that's interesting, what OS am I running"
Them: "I am phoning from Windows"
Me: "Ok, now I don't know much about computers, can you tell me which company you're calling from?"
Them: "yes sir, Windows"
Me: "The software, wow"
Them: "that is correct, we can help"
Me: "Jolly good, I suggest you get yourself some protection you scamming peice of &^$(, I will come to where you are, find you, and only you, and check you for virsuses" I then ranted on for a couple of seconds using swear words that will mean the recording will never get used for training purposes.
Coincedence or scammer? Just seems weird that they phone within a couple of moments after removing software. Stern words with parents now regarding putting their phone number into registration forms
