Everytime I try to run a program or do anything on the computer, I get a pop-up saying Security Warning saying "Cannot run application. program is infected do you want to run antivirus?" then it redirects me to purchase from Antivirmore.com.

Please help.

Thank you.

antivirmore.com is a browser hijacker/trojan horse. it infects your computer then sends you error messages that refer you to buy the thing and then the viruses would jsut disappear, this is an easy way for the hacker to make money. My friend is encountering the same problem atm and were figuring out on how to fix it, best solution so far seems to be Spyware Doctor 8just google it).

PEOPLE, DONT RELY ON FREE ANTIVIRUSES. THEY ARE THE PROBLEMS THAT CAUSE YOU THIS KIND OF bleep.
