Thanks for the link to this excellent article. My husband agrees 100%. Exactly this happened to him. It was late, he just wanted to install 7-zip, didn't pay attention, realized, wanted to stop, too late.
Now I do understand, that avast can not warn me when I randomly download programs. However, Avast warned me when uninstalling. So in an uninstall routine was a virus. Why avast can not detect the virus while downloading?
Sorry for the many questions. I want to understand. It helps for the future.
I am quite experienced in computer and internet stuff, but I am an absolut newbie to virus issues. I was well protected the last 20 years. I was always careful and never in a hurry when downloading stuff.
Is there anything I can do to say thank you? I am really happy that you and TerraX helped fast, competent and in a very patient and friendly way .
Oops, we speak english in the german sector. Hopefully we do not get a penalty.
