So, after a three day convention, I come back home and find that my computer was infected with something. My sister knows but refuses to tell me what happened, I had to find out myself.
Anyway, I start up IE and a popup shows me that I'm infected with an unkown trojan (with horrible grammar, by the way) so I start a search with Norton 360 and it tells me it detected IEDEFENDER, but it was low risk so it didn't get rid of it. I changed the settings of Norton and on the next scan it "fixed" it.
The same popup! So, I go to google trying to find a remedy and my searches become compromised.
So, I typed in "defender ie" instead and found this tutorial on your website.
I was wondering, since Vista doesn't work with some applications/programs, if that tutorial would fix my problem.
Here are some things about my Vista:
Windows Vista Home Premium
Intel® Core2 Quad CPU @ 2.40GHz
1.98 GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce8500 GT
32-bit Operating System
Oh, and again, Norton claims to have removed "IEDEFENDER," and that's what it says. I can bring it back if needed. It will allow that much.
Once I get the confirmation, I'll go ahead and work through the tutorial.
Thank you guys for your time!
My sister finally fessed up, and she told me that she pressed OK on that message that showed up claiming that there was an unkwown trojan and ran the setup for IEDEFENDER, but like I said, Norton claims it got rid of IEDEFENDER, but I'm not sure if it really is out or not (my sister also claims she got rid of it, too after downloading).
What I read about IEDEFENDER, it seems the problem just got worse >.<;;
To prevent things from happening, I'm shutting off my internet connection for now, I'll check back on this forum in a day or two.
