I apologize for the length of my post but I have tried to explain my problem..Here goes...
I had something called "VIRUS PROTECT ANTI SPYWARE program on my computer.
It basically took over and it wouldn't delete, go away...I tried everything..Even sacrificied a chicken...Still wouldn't be gone. Also, it told me I had 96 problems.
It took over my home page and I kept getting a message that Yahoo had blocked an attempt by another program to change my default settings.
Well, I have an exceptionaly good anti spyware program, which I ran and it found 2 spyware...Ran AntiVirus program..It found 6 viruses, which I deleted.
Still, had a problem so I ran, as quickly as I could, to this site, accessed "Popup and other malware infecting your computer?" followed the instructions given by Grinler.....And....I AM SAVED!!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!!!
Yes...Got rid of everything!!!! Well, except for one small detail....
See, on the tool bar is an icon that looks like a small shield with an X on it and it keeps blinking at me....Driving me to drink.
Every once in a while it comes up with the following message:"SYSTEM ALERT:
System has detected a number of active spyware applications that MAY impact the performance of your computer.
Click the Icon to get rid of unwanted spyware by downloading an up to date antispyware solution."
Tried right clicking on it to remove it and it suddenly creates a blank page on my screen....I just go to the "X" on top of page, remove it and continue on...The only thing is this blinking icon and the message that keeps popping up....
Any ideas on how to get rid of this blnking icon...There it is again!!!
It mocks me....
Thanks for any help.....There it is again....
By the way, the VIRUS PROTECT ANTI-SPYWARE program is from a company in Latvia...Latvia...???
