I am getting a system error message stating I have been infected by a trojan and to download an antimalware application to clean my system. Clicking ok directs me to download from site 89.149.227.195. I have not done this and when I googled that number your forum came up. Suggestions? I am running Windows XP professional. Thanks

these are rogue spyware infections and the only trojan is the one that the guys wanting to sell you something, have put on your computer

this is cyber terrorism and of all places I see it coming out of canada and germany

after searching on that infection I think it would be best to run this scanner/fix first
  • Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and save it to a convenient location.
  • Double click on mbam-setup.exe to install it.
  • Before clicking the Finish button, make sure that these 2 boxes are checked (ticked):
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
      Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware will now check for updates. If your firewall prompts, please allow it. If you can't update it, select the Update tab. Under Update Mirror, select one of the websites and click on Check for Updates.
  • Select the Scanner tab. Click on Perform full scan, then click on Scan.
  • Leave the default options as it is and click on Start Scan.
  • When done, you will be prompted. Click OK, then click on Show Results.
  • Checked (ticked) all items and click on Remove Selected.
  • After it has removed the items, Notepad will open. Please post this log in your next reply. You can also find the log in the Logs tab. The bottom most log is the latest.
