Best way to avoid such scams is restricting auto-running of malicious extension during browsing.
And how might you go about that? The extension is planted by a bad web site inside of Chrome itself.

The main idea is to not give in to the scam!

Re: BAS FILES IN WIND 10

If you have a 64 bit machine it will never run! 32 bit only supports screen 0 too.

If the BAS files were not saved as text, they can be rescued. IE not readable in notepad.

Try QB64 at the link in my signature...they also have a file converter for the BAS files to text.
