someone's trying to tell me something...
my Dell PC came with a year of Norton, so that's what I've been using... a few weeks ago I started having trouble with 'Winfixer' and just figured it was regular spyware; I've been trying to figure out how to get rid of it since... (I've done all the steps and have a post in HJT analysis)
but here's my question: WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE??? I'm interested because they seem to have a point to make... my Norton aparently recieved an update, ran a scan , and removed Winfixer, and then IMMEDIETY another screen promoting WINANTIVIRUSPRO2006 came up to tell me about their imaginary product... the whole thing was a comparison to Norton AntiVirus to show how crappy (and expensive) Norton was! In big letters across the top of the ad it reads: "Your Norton AntiVirus Software is NOT EFFECTIVE!!!"
complete with feature analysis and 'user testimonials'... my computer IS screwing up because of SOMETHING, but it also seems like the Winfixer people are trying to make a point...?
any thoughts? links to articles or information about this stuff?
