    There is something on my computer that I am unable to identify. It keeps directing my browser to this site http://thesafetyfiles.com/. It aslo has something that stays in my system tray that continuously pop's up recommending that i download the software from this site. It's very frustrating because except for this site, the previously mentioned site is the only one I can go to. It also directs me to this web site http://www.antivirgear.com/?aff=1012. If anyone know's how this can be stopped or what it is please let me know. It also states W32.Myzor.FK@yf is a virus and it states the specific's of that virus. It recommend's to download officially approves software, and the window title, in internet explorer is security center.

     

     

    Thanks

    Well, Thank You but I am using Windows Live One Care and this is how I found this forum. Hopefully you will be willing to help me. I started having this problem and immediately went and downloaded Windows Live One Care. Do I need to explain myself any further.
