Hi, all.


I've now gotten the Internet Security 2013 virus twice.  It was MrSEC.com both times, by the way, and even if I try to avoid the site, a lot of reputable sports sites link there.  The last one was on a link off the USA Today sports home page!


I have my home computer locked down with Spyware Blaster and scan with Malware Bytes and I know I've been to MrSEC.com accidently since they've been infected without any problem.  So something that I have configured at home (probably by Spyware Blaster) blocks it.


The problem I have is that my company doesn't give me admin rights or let me install software so I can't run Spyware Blaster on my work computer.  Yes, coming in through a basic user account, the Trojan rogue can break things, but the internet settings are locked such that I can't get in to block it.


I was wondering if anyone knew what setting Spyware Blaster changes to block it because I could temporarily request an "admin login" that would let me change them but not install a SW package.

mea culpa. I misread/misinterpreted what the OP of the thread stated. Since the reply I made was so off base I am deleting it and have admitted my mistake to the OP in another topic he started & apologized to him.
