    Hi! The weekend. Relax time! But not for a friend at work. She's concerned that her PC has gotten infected, so much so that she's changing her all her passwords, security key answers etc. etc.

    What's got her worried is that different fields in different programs have suddenly been 'filled in' in yellow. Sometimes it's her logon ID, other times her password field and so on. Never the same field in the same program ie always random and changing.

    Are any of you peeps aware of a virus/trojan that does this please? If you solve this, I'll have a free coffee on Monday - plus a very happy friend! :D
