Hi all, my name is Jerry. Totally newbie here, so if I violate your protocol, please accept my apologies, my first post. When logging on to the internet with IE, i get a warning page. Any website that i try to access thru IE gives me the same warning.I also get the small Windows Security Alert box that says "Application cannot be executed. The file googletoolbar_32.exe is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus software now? When clicking on "Yes" it takes you to a webpage to purchase AV protection from a website (Rogue website URL removed) where you are offered 3 choices of levels of AV protection to purchase. I've tried different ways to get around this but cannot access anything thru IE. Not long ago my AV protection thru Trendmicro expired, and no sooner than that, I acquired this problem.I began to follow your 8 steps to eliminate it. I downloaded Avast Antivirus and ran a full scan. nothing was picked up in it but there were approx. 7 or 8 files that it couldn't access. Next I downloaded TFC but it won't allow it to run. I went on to the next step. I downloaded MBAM went thru the install, but again it won't let the program scan. Any help or suggestions on where or how to proceed from here, would be greatly appreciated. I have Mozilla Firefox as an alternative internet access on my computer, which is how I am able to access your website. Thank you in advance for your help.
