Off Topic:windows security clone???? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • hi all,A friend asked me to look at his computer cus he had a virus that he cant get rid of,

    I'll get to the point,He keeps gettin a message bubble sayin ''download new anti-virus excistin anti-virus out of date'' so he did.

    now all the comp does is anti-virus scans with A.C.S or summat like that,it finds about 66 viruses then stops an askes you to pay $50,an he it keeps gettin the security centre shield on the task bar to tell you the anti-virus your using is out of date,but if you go to control panel an look at your firewall,updates an virus protection are fine no problems,A.C.S the anti-virus you cant get rid of says his comp has zombie bots,adaware,spam,these i can sort but what about a windows security clone???

  • I suggest contacting support for the currently installed antivirus application.
