Worried I may have a virus :-/

  1. Hello all.

    Newbie to the forum.....(thank you for being here!!)
    My problem is with my Acer Aspire, I have windows 10 and tonight when I turned my laptop on, I get an annoying window that won't go away.
    It has this at the top of the window.....

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Amazon\Amazon Assistant\aa.hta

    Any ideas on this or help would be very much appreciated!

    Many thanks, Rabooshka

    Hi, Thanks for the link....
    I tried this earlier, but both the 'modify' and 'uninstall' are in light grey and it doesn't do anything when clicked on
    :oops: !

    The window that comes up is completely blank apart from the C:\Program Files (x86)\Amazon\Amazon Assistant\aa.hta in the top left hand corner.

    Were you able to fix your problem? I'm afraid I'm experiencing the same thing and I do not know how to fix it. The previous replies do not help at all. :(
