I have numerous pop-ups on my desktop saying to Activate "Vista Internet Security" and that my computer is infected with Trojan-BNK.Win32.Keylogger.gen
My home page has also been hijacked and tells me to download Vista Internet Security. I've searched the site but couldn't find any topics related to this problem...
Would have thought this was a legit security site until I realized my computer runs Norton Internet Security and also that a legit site wouldn't hijack my homepage.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
