Have a friend's computer that all of a sudden got this program showing up on her computer, I believe it's called MySearchEngine. Anyway, it's one of those programs that shows she had 4 trojans, 46 virus's etc, click here to remove, when you do, you get the "for only $49.99"

Anyone heard of this one and how do you get rid of it?

Thanks in advance.

Hello ez2cy and :thumbsup: to BleepingComputer!

Is this the rogue program you are infected with? If so, try the steps listed in this link.

If not, please let me know and we'll try to remove it :flowers:
