I went out for a couple of hours last night and left the computer connected to the internet. When I came back there were pop up all over the screen, behind the pop ups was a pornographic website.
I clicked out of everything and there was a message on screen saying " You are in danger your system is compromised and it was also telling me to get rid of all spyware" This was written by a person who does not speak good english as there were lots of spelling mistakes etc. which is why I became suspicious.
Everytime I put the computer now the internet explorer comes on automatically with this pornographic site.
I don't want to turn the computer on or go online as I have children and I am also worried about my security when I am online.
The only site I was on yesterday before going out was ebay. But my son likes to play free games online and my brother has told me that the virus probably originates from one of these sites as my computer has lots of temp files and runs really slow whenever he has been on these sites.
I think this is possibly a trojan but not so sure.
