Hi everyone,
 
  New to the forum. This message I keep getting on facebook is only on my work computer. I login and get "Your computer needs to be cleaned" I have tried everything to get rid of this thing or bypass it (including the old thread on this forum) and nothing seems to work. I have followed every instructional on youtube and every post and nothing works. I have ESET which supposedly partnered with FB to combat this issue and I have Malwarebytes. I have no idea how all this started to begin with. One day everything was fine and the next day here I am. Does anybody know how to permanently fix this issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Edit: Moved topic from Windows 7 to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Hi boopme,

 

   Thank you for taking the time to reply. I tried that several times originally but it didn't work. So I just removed Chrome completely and installed firefox but still get the same thing. Even of IE as well.

Okay, I followed step 6 and did the scan. You want me to start a whole new topic? Or you want me to cut and paste the scan result here?
