I got a Win7 Anti Virus 2012 on my computer and it says to install the anti virus software now. It is confirmed that this IS the virus....I did not purchase this but I did do their scan even though I also ran my Avast anti virus scan and it said there was no compromised files. However, I cant get on Internet Explorer when I try to open it the Win7 opens us and says there are 29 threats have been found and that I need to purchase this program. I dont know if I actually have the virus or not....I am guessing I do since I cant open the internet....

My question is what antispyware program should I use to uninstall this....there is nothing listed for Win 7 2012....

Thanks Pselkey
