Has anyone heard of this System Smart Security? my brother is infected with it and I haven't laid my eyes on the computer, just had some of the problems described to me. It redirects his browser to startnow.com, along with asking him to buy this anti virus program, which I can't believe he did! so the program got his credit card number or bank card which has about 100 dollars on it. First he should cancel the card, but I recommend a clean install since there is nothing on his laptop important, does this sound like what he should do? other than not get back on-line until he knows to never ever give out his credit card info...thanks
