off topic - A problem I need help with!!!!!!!!!!! RRS feed

  • General discussion


    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.

    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.
