Help I have an antivirus program don't understand how I got a virus. . . .


Question is how do I remove an icon that is on my taskbar Is a flashing ? with a red X cicle around it. If I right click on the icon it takes me to VirusProtecPRO. When I click on the ad it just wants me to download their program stating "free download antivirus protection. When I try to copy/past this is what I get

java script:void(0);

How do I get rid of this garbage?

Thanks.

Follow the the instructions in BC's self-help tutorial: How to remove VirusProtectPro or VirusProtect Pro

Next, download RogueRemover and save to you Desktop. (This program is for Win XP, 2000, NT only)
  • Double-click on rr-free-setup.exe to install in C:\Program Files\RogueRemover.
  • During the installation an icon will automatically be created on your Desktop.
  • Double-click on the RogueRemover icon to launch the program and select Check for Updates.
  • If prompted, click Download to receive the latest updates.
  • When completed, close the update window.
  • Select "Scan" and the program will walk you through the remaining steps.
Then download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free in "Safe Mode".
