I tried the security section but found I couldn't post there. So taking a punt - I downloaded the GMER this afternoon from this site  and got a red alert message and am wondering what that is all about??

Am running Kaspersky 2013 - could this be the problem as I am not sure because the warning came up as an IE9 strip on the bottom of the screen.

So can someone please tell me what the go is with this??

GMER is powerful tool that does semi unusual things such as look as the MBR - it gets flagged from time to time

unless the download website got hacked (unusual)
or you have an expecially bad virus that redirects download (semi unusual especially with no other warnings from kaspersky)

Hello and Welcome -

There should be no reason for you not posting in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal area -

Your original post was moved from Windows7 area of the forum to Am I Infected (and it seems you are)

If you do think that you do have a serious infection, please follow these directions .............

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting from step 3.
 If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.
Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues, and what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.
If you can produce at least some logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.
If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow His Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.

Thank You -
