Hello, this is my first post. I have System Mechanic Pro protection on my computer which is a Dell. A week before Christmas I started getting what I presume is a browser hacking virus, what basically happens is that I get all the help support pages come up frequently(i.e, support pages from IE, Firefox, windows, Google Chrome, System Mechanic Pro....you get the picture....I type a suggestion into a browser and the support page comes up, i can delete it but then it comes straight back. Numerous scans have been done, all add ons and extensions disabled and re-enabled, system restore done twice, all to no avail! The scans have denoted no virus's or infections. I am at a loss as to what to do next as I think it might be in the deep part of the system. This morning(30/12/2013) I downloaded bitdefender for a free trial and the scan was taking so long(5 hours and only 40% through) that I disposed of it even though it found 123 errors which it disinfected. System Mechanic Pro seems very lethargic and I don't think it is very good.Can someone please advise me as to what to do now as I am at my wits end....Thanks!!
