  1. Hello,

    I am having this problem where if i click on a folder in my documents for example I get an alert,"Dangerous Error!" and some other text about downloading an antivirus software. When I hit no it opens a page in my browser about "IE Critical Update Needed".

    Please can someone give a solution and have a look at my log file.

    I THINK I'm clear of it now. I did so many things, though, I don't know what the fix was.
    (if it's fixed, please God, let it be fixed)

    There's a video tutorial on YouTube for the removal of it.

    Also, on the Secutiry Cadets forum, they had some (I think) helpful tips.

    "Rogue" Program(s)

    You are describing the classic symptoms of a "Rogue" Program and the 1st
    "Thing" to try to remove it is running a "Full Scan" of an Updated FREE Version
    of "Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware" available from
    www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php .

    In "LeeMcF" s Situation, completely removing One of the 2 antivirus programs,
    including the use of its "Removal Tool", is essentail .

    Omg! Thank you so much. You are my new best friend. ;) Malwarebytes worked like a charm. It removed so much other stuff from my PC as well. Thanks again.
