I accessed the wireless internet wirelessly, using Verizon's wireless.
I got a message on my computer stating that I was being infected and asking me if I wanted some free software to remove it. I clicked Yes. Then it said the infected files were too bad and I needed to purchase a program, to which I declined. Then soft porn started popping up on the computer.
After the porn evolved into hardcore porn, I tried three different times to shut the computer off. Finally it shut down.
Now when I returned to the computer, it will turn on and that rogue offer to sell me software is still there, but I cannot log on wirelessly anymore as I keep getting the message that my Verizon Access software is infected.
I am sending this message from a computer at the public library where I can recieve email at removed to protect from spambots i AM AFRAID TO TURN MY COMPUTER BACK ON BECAUSE i AM AFRAID IT WILL MAKE THE PROBLEM WORSE. Please send me an email to tell me what to do next. I will be checking my email at the public library for your messages. If you are willing to call me, please do so. I live in the Removed and my telephone number is removed to protect member.
Thank you very much,
Mary Rose Anderson
