I am the focus for a number of people's computer problem questions. This just came up and I don't know what to do in several directions. Several people got a virus that gives a false "Microsoft Security Alert" message and then leaves malware on their computer. It was obtained by visiting www.usteam.tv-decoraeagles . This site has worked for years but now instantly loads the problem. I know as when I just visited it, my machine, WIndows XP Pro, got infected. One of the other machines, for sure, is Windows 7. On my machine, the "residual" interfered with downloading Malwarebytes from CNet. I got it downloaded in safe mode and will try that. Mine and I believe the other machines were all running Microsoft Security Essentials.
I don't know the best way to remove this from any of the systems and I don't know how to notify people properly to get the site fixed. Help? Thanks.
