    3. We think it is good and bad, the good reason is that Charlie learnt to not click on random emails from people he does not know or recognise, bad reason is that he had given himself a virus that he cannot undo / control currently.

    3. It was not a good idea to open the link because he could have a virus and someone can see everything on his computer like his personal information .Also someone could steal all of your money and know your phone number!

    4. Charlie should tell an adult that he trusts. He should also tell the adult that whenever he closes an advert a new one appears .

    3. It was not a good idea to click on the website . I think this because there is a possibility that he did not win anything . Also ,it could have unleashed a bad virus . This suggests that it was not a good idea because it possibly not true and it could have unleashed something worse than a pop up (a virus).

    I think that Charlie should tell an adult so they can look at it and if they they should take it to a repair shop.

    3. I think that it wasn’t a good idea because the email didn’t have a name. Also the email looked suspicious and didn’t look like a real email.
