    Temporary solution for stopping the Tuesday 27/06/17 Ramsomware.

    The solution is a very easy one that most, if not all users can fix themselves

    It's a very simple procedure to create the folder.

    Click on the windows folder on the c: drive

    Look at the top of the page, and click on the new folder icon
    click continue then choose yes on the file operation menu.

    Then you will see the new folder that's been created highlighted in blue
    type in perfc in the box to rename it.
