Damn kids.....

Anyone else seeing the following in the web address line pop-up on their Internet Explorer home page ?!?

http://spydetect.microsoft.com/block.php?r=21.1 ???

Bought and installed the latest and greatest Trend Micro Anti-Virus/Spyware suite and it does not seem to be addressing this problem and still getting some-pop-ups from what I am guessing is an embedded Microsoft program saying my system is under attack, blah-blah-blah...

Any ez way to uninstall Internet Explorer in a Windows XP operating system and then re-install ?? AOL and Safari seem to be fine and unaffected.

Not sure about uninstalling IE, but I have been running Google Chrome browser for about 6 months now and I love it, faster, better, more secure than any version of IE I have ever used.

You will probably need to download a program called hijackthis and run a scan of your system. If you are not knowledgeable about system start up files you can submit a copy of your scan log on one of the hijackthis forums and get some help. Unless you know what you doing I don't suggest that you make any system changes without direction.

Try Malwarebytes. Great luck with it removing many of the ransomware programs.

I'm running malwearbytes cause everybody raved about it. First scan it cleaned up all kinds of crap. Ever since it say's I have nothing. Adaware used to find 300 some odd things every time. The numbers are always the same. I think there's some kinda bulls#it going on....

That's what you should use and just so you know...that's a nasty virus, hard to get rid of...I got it on my work laptop (at least a similar version) and my work IT guys finally wiped the whole thing clean since they couldn't completely remove it....good luck.

I got as far as loading the malwarebytes program, and this virus must be nasty as it is somehow keeping the malware from "quaranteening" the root virus, FOCK ME !!!!

Looks like I may have to call the Geek Squad as I am running out of patience for this friggin' crap !!!!!! :|err
