If you get this fake alert, it will be obvious that you have NOT been infected yet by running your spyware detection program and it does not find a problem. I have read all kinds of convoluted and over complicated solutions that are simply not needed, but if someone has some software to sell you, then that's why they're presenting that solution.

This is a 2 minute fix. Here's a hint....you already have the means to fix it on your PC! Duh, it's called "System Restore." It won't cost a penny and it will save you hours of headache.

Your welcome.

System restore will not solve malware issues. It may reduce symptoms for a while, but that is all. The infection is still there and will rear up its ugly head worse than before.
