Hi Malware Response Team

Your posts have increased my knowledge - thanks.

I am running windows 7 home 64-bit. Following the installation of Privitize VPN, I was later prompted to install something similar to contact manager installer...
-windows security center couldnt start
-the pc browser started to randomly redirect to two alternate browsers

I have done the following:

1)

Hello,lets see if if there are other locations for this.
Do you use browsers other than Internet Explorer 9?

Go to Start > Control Panel.
Click on Uninstall a program under Programs area.
Look for a name Privitize VPN Redirect and click on Uninstall/Change.
If you do not see that look and remove these Audiobook, GamePlayLab, Zoomex, PrivitizeVPN, 000 Industry

Now see if any off these are in the Add ond /extrensions and Remove or Disable Add-ons
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

Hi
Privitize was uninstalled
Avast has issued an upgrade from 5 to 7. The upgrade seems to have fixed the problem.
