  1. Hello, please help me. Problems started with the beetles eating my homepage desktop. Then virus isolator downloaded itself, then had blue background with yellow writing saying 'Spyware detected on computer...'. Keep getting popups to download virus, adware, malware software. Now have winfixer. On the web homepage have new tool bar. So far have ran ad aware, macafee scan, smitfraud scan, and hijack this. Results are posted. Thank You all in advance. I need to attach the hijack summary in a reply.


    Please see thread reply

    tell me you didn't click yes on that box. It is a scam to get you to buy their product.

    However, this is somebody elses thread so you really need to start your own in our security and the web section
