Being new to the website introducing myself as Curt, an American ex-Pat residing in Sweden. Do NOT click on the website below, as I have entered it as being the source of a scam program titled: Windows Critical Scanner. It was delivered via an e-mail being shown as coming from my cousin in the USA, but all that was shown in this e-mail was the website line below.
Being as my cousins daughter had recently died of cancer I didn't take necessary precautions being anxious to hear from her. BIG MISTAKE!
The program immediately disabled "Windows Security Essentials" leaving me to believe it was updating the program; and, didn't realize I'd been scammed until it demanded my Visa Card and $19.95, marked down from $29.95 (what a bargain)! The program then proceeded to disable MSE + my Browser, which now ONLY works in Safe Mode. And to make matters worst I deleted MSE from my HDD thinking it was somehow now associated with the valid "Microsoft Security Essentials" program, which I can NOT reinstall because it won't accept installation in Safe Mode! What a nightmare the last 4-hours has been. And can't find or locate the malware or Trojan even searching ALL hidden files on my HDD.
If, I could get my hands around the neck of these scamers, I'd squeeze until they quit kicking! Any help with this problem would be much appreciated. HELP!
