      Depression, Mental Health and Crisis Support   06/04/2017

      Depression, Mental Health and Crisis Support   Depression and other mental health difficulties are common amongst people on the autistic spectrum and their carers.   People who are affected by general mental health difficulties are encouraged to receive and share information, support and advice with other forum members, though it is important to point out that this exchange of information is generally based on personal experience and opinions, and is not a substitute for professional medical help.   There is a list of sources of mental health support here: <a href="http://www.asd-forum.org.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=18801" target="_blank">Mental Health Resources link</a>   People may experience a more serious crisis with their mental health and need urgent medical assistance and advice. However well intentioned, this is not an area of support that the forum can or should be attempting to offer and we would urge members who are feeling at risk of self-harm or suicide to contact either their own GP/health centre, or if out of hours contact NHS Direct on 0845 4647 or to call emergency services 999.   We want to reassure members that they have our full support in offering and seeking advice and information on general mental health issues. Members asking for information in order to help a person in their care are seeking to empower both themselves and those they represent, and we would naturally welcome any such dialogue on the forum.   However, any posts which are deemed to contain inference of personal intent to self-harm and/or suicide will be removed from the forum and that person will be contacted via the pm system with advice on where to seek appropriate help.   In addition to the post being removed, if a forum member is deemed to indicate an immediate risk to themselves, and are unable to be contacted via the pm system, the moderating team will take steps to ensure that person's safety. This may involve breaking previous confidentiality agreements and/or contacting the emergency services on that person's behalf.   Sometimes posts referring to self-harm do not indicate an immediate risk, but they may contain material which others find inappropriate or distressing. This type of post will also be removed from the public forum at the moderator's/administrator's discretion, considering the forum user base as a whole.   If any member receives a PM indicating an immediate risk and is not in a position (or does not want) to intervene, they should forward the PM to the moderating team, who will deal with the disclosure in accordance with the above guidelines.   We trust all members will appreciate the reasoning behind these guidelines, and our intention to urge any member struggling with suicidal feelings to seek and receive approproiate support from trained and experienced professional resources.   The forum guidelines have been updated to reflect the above.   Regards,   The mod/admin team

Hi teresa - don't know anything about this specifically, but be careful what you do to try and get rid of it... If your antivirus manufacturer has a user forum look there, or look the official websites of other well known antivirus manufacturers or any advice sites you know to be generally safe. DON't download anything off the internet that promises to cure your problem unless you know it's a legit AV programme from a legit site... doing a quick search on the internet the virus name appears to be one used by Mcafee (av manufacturers all tend to have different names for the same trojan or whatever) so you could start by looking at their site. I also noticed a couple of threads in a cnet forum and cnet is usually fairly reliable...

Hope someone can offer something more specific, but hope that's useful in the interim.

L&P

Sounds nasty.

 

We had something like that some time ago, this one would disappear for a few days and then pop up again.

When I told our local computer man, it seemed the message is the all part of a scam to get you to pay money for an antivirus/spy-ware, the message IS the virus.

Anyway we ended up having the hard drive wiped and reloaded, only way to get rid of it.

 

And then changed our antivirus protection to one recommended by him, not the one B.T. use.

 

Lets hope what you have isn't the same.

Thanks for your reply's, my spyware etc.. comes as a package with my broadband, have looked to see what it might be on the net but not found out much. Spyware can quaratine it but not delete it, and it's showing in the spyware log as registry not spyware cookie. Have backed my work up and done a system restore not sure what else i can do.

Thanks

Hi teresa - if it's quarantined you should be okay, unless it's one that reinstalls itself every time you restart. If that is happening then you will have to track it down and delete the installer from the registry, but if you're not getting 'fresh' versions when you scan again then you're probably safe.

System restore might have helped, provided you went back to a place prior to infection and it's not installed a root kit in the registry. hope so.
