  1. Hi,

    The fake pop up window security alert appeared the other day and after a minute I realized something was strange and hit the "x" button on the pop up screens.

    I don't think I clicked any of the download buttons.

    Someone told me that when that pop up window appears that I still have the virus, even if I did not click on anything.

    I immediately did a disk clean up and ran my spybot and trend micro virus software.

    Please tell me if my computer is infected. I have listed my hijacthis report.

    Thanks in advance.

    yup.. do you have an antivirus program running? You need to scan your computer right away and remove the virus. It's usually named as Rogue.Antivirus2009

    Yes, I have Trend Micro anti virus. I did a scan and nothing was detected.
