My father was infected with a virus that immediately prompted him to purchase antivirus software for immediate recovery and cleaning. Unsable to contact me he paid the $70 + dollars. I would like to recover his money and make sure he is clean.

He was Skyping with a friend and he was presented with proprietary virus alert that stated his computer was infected, (he thinks it mentioned SKYPE), and other files as well, and he was unable to exit, with out purchasing the the product. No symptoms are available to me at this time, but once the scan was complete he was able tto return to his internet surfing.

That's all I know, but I want to get him his money back, and bring this extortion practice to public awareness. Thanks... you guys (and gals) have bennwith me for over 5 years.
