Biography
I am active on several on line help forums helping people with security problems, removing malware, viruses, spyware, adware , trojans etc from their computers. The main forums I work with are http://www.thespykiller.co.uk and TSG http://forums.techguy.org I run a co-operative venture between many of the malware fighters and several of the Antivirus/Anti-Trojan/Anti-spyware companies where a private forum has been set up to enable discussion of the current threats & ways to overcome them. http://malware-research.co.uk/ I have recently started a new blog where I attempt to keep users informed about currently spreading malware, especially those that come attached to emails or as a result of clicking links in emails, as well as other security related information and clear sensible advice about how to protect themselves and not become a victim of phishing or malware. http://myonlinesecurity.co.uk/ When I am not online I am involved with my other passion Animal Welfare and I run a small Hedgehog Rescue centre http://thehedgehog.co.uk
