I am running Windows 7 64 Pro. I currently have the trials of {Malwarebytes,Zemana Anti-Malware,AdwCleaner,rkill,Hitman Pro. Is this a virus and if so can I remove it or is it something that Microsoft came out with an update ? Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

I say the following not as an attack, but out of genuine surprise:   You've never been presented with an image reCaptcha before?!!!  Count yourself very lucky, and quite exceptional.

 

These things are in use all over the place, almost always as login security after you've fat-fingered a password more than once, but sometimes "at random" for certain folks trying to log in.

 

It's not a virus and it's not something you can remove.

Hi,

I agree with britechguy.


If you use the Chrome search extensively and repeatedly you will have to confirm that you are not a BOT.

Do you have any other issues with this computer?
