Help me please!! Upon start up I get a red box in the lower right hand of my screen that says " Your Computer Is Infected" "Critical System Error" then it goes on to say that I need to use antimalware software. When I click in the box it takes me to Spyfalcon - The problem is I cannot seem to find a file name or anything in my registry. this box is on the screen every 5 min and stays for about 10 sec. I downloaded Windows Defender (Beta 2) and did a scan - but it doesn't see anything either. I know that this has already been listed but it appears that I would need to know the file name in order to get the correct fix. What do I do - or will any of the suggested fixs work?

Thanks,
Mike

Animal,

Thanks for your help. I ended up just needing to install and run the roguescanfix program - once I did that it was gone. I guess the rest of the steps ddidn't need to be completed since I never actually installed Spyfalcon. Anyways, thanks for your assistance.

Mike :thumbsup:
