    I've had to deal with this phone call about 20 times in the last fortnight, it's really annoying now. What exactly are they trying to achieve by getting people to type 'eventvwr' anyway?

    Anyone else had this problem?

    EDIT: Yes you have, 'scam or joke', I search for eventvwr and it turned up nothing. Disregard this please, mod delete? :)

    If they can get it on to your PC as an .exe then they'll be able to see what you've been doing, your system specs and everything else and for people who are not to clever with online banking there will be a trail that some one could pick up on.

    Plus if some ones got access to your system what to say any thing else won't be put on, key loggers etc.
