I have come across a popup that keeps on telling me that i have a System error and it is at risk of infection. I click on the bubble and it takes me straight to a web site (VirusProtectPro) that says it can remove the problem no worries. But there is a catch, it's all fauls crap just to get money.I have run spybot serch and destroy,also macafee and they both have failed to rid my pc of this bug.Is there a way to do this with out spending loads of cash.I have thought of just running my recovery disc and starting with a fresh slate once i have backed up my presious files.

What do you think i should do??

Hey stegs and :thumbsup: to BC

Read the thread found here as it has instructions for VirusProtectPro's removal.

Also visit the New User Orientation Centre which will familarise you with the site and also check out the tutorials which have a lot of useful info.

Have a great day :flowers:
