From your forums I can see that I'm not the only one infected with the fake Windows Security Alert pop-up. I have run AVG scan, SpyBot S&D, SuperAntiSpy, and MBAM. Each time, the pop-up reappears. My web page is sabatoged also. This is more than just annoying for me because I run some rather involved programs and each time the pop-up appears (about every 10 min.) my program minimizes and takes 1 to 3 minutes to reboot. Can you :crazy:please help me?

Hi,

i know how u feel, I have just been hit with this and I am getting annoying virus alert pop ups that take an age to get rid off.

My windows Defender identifies them and deletes but as soon as I re-boot there back.

If you solve your problem please contact me and hopefully you can tell me what to do and vice versa if I solve mine I will drop you a line, but what a pain :thumbsup:

perhaps if you would like to post the reports from the Superantispyware and Malawarebytes programs you have already run someone can check them for you?
