Just introducing my self. I'm a 58 yr old, born and raised and still living in So Cal, USA. Still play basketball and love to watch NBA, so am enjoying the All Star Game hoopla. I don't know if I'm supposed to post my problem here or not, but here goes anyway. I somehow downloaded an "antivirus" program that calls itself "System Tool", but it is really a virus, and a nasty one at that. It has completely taken over my computer, (running xp home, service pack 2). I am running Malwarebytes as I am writing this , from safe mode, because in regular mode, I can't execute anything, (I get a message telling me that I can't run that program because it is infected). It is trying to get me to buy its program, but who would be stupid enough to use a credit card with a company that uses tactics like this to get you to buy its program? I ran malwarebytes once without updating because I didn't know if I could get on the net to get the update, but it didn't find anything, so I chanced it and it looks like it updated ok, and I'm running it now. I also have spybot on my computer, ( A Winbook A213 laptop), but haven't run it yet. Just checked my computer again, and the Malwarebytes is done, and only found one thing, but it looks like maybe that was it.
