First off thank you for taking the time to read and try to help.
I have a desktop Windows XP Professional , and only had MSE. My mom first noticed
a red X saying our computer was not protected and firewall was off, but we would go to
control panel and click on the windows firewall and it was on. That was the first strange
thing, then she googled something and it redirected her to 'datingpuma.com' the funny
thing about that was when the page would come up it took a while then looked like a java
website. So we freaked out.
Ran scans from MSE several times during that day and it kept
telling us about
'Java/CVE-2011-3544.N' it said it was removed but an hour later and it found it again.
this happened alot.
I ran vipre rescue, Msnet, MSE scans.
Right now the java issue does not come up but now the computer is really slow and takes
forever to startup. I tried spybot and that found a few 'threats'. right now (this might
be doing more damage than good...) we have MSE, Spybot, and SUPERantispyware. free edition.
Google is still being redirected. And Im getting worried my computer is just going to
stop working. a few hours ago I turned it off and when I pressed the bottom button to start
up it took 15 minutes I couldn't hear the fan running or anything but the start up light was on.
I hope something is not seriously wrong but you never know with computers. Anyway thanks in advance!
