I have a yellow triangle flashing on my right lower tool bar that keeps saying I am infected and then displays in an Exlporer window trying to get me to download and scan and ultimately pay for Antivermins. This is very annoying. I think my boys were viewing porn previous to this although they claim innocence. When I leave the computer to rest a while I come back and some full screen porn ad is on display. I have gone into properties to add these htmls to block but new ones keep popping up. Help?

Hi there mom53
Is this what you are seeing.........AntiVermins
Apparently it's a Rogue Anti-Spyware program.
First thing to do is... see if it's in your Add or Remove Programs, you may be able to unistall it from there.
Failing that, as this info comes from SuperAntiSpyware..... i would download and run their program.
You can get the free version from..... Here
Once installed.... from the main window, click on 'Check for updates'
Once you have the updates close the program down.

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :

* Restart your computer
* After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
* Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
* Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
* Choose your usual account.

Now click on the SuperAntiSpyware icon to start the program.
From the main window..... click on 'Scan your Computer'
Make sure that the 'c' drive is selected... then click on Complete Scan
Let it fix anything that it finds.
When the scan is complete... reboot into normal mode.
Let us know how things go.
Btw.... maybe your boys weren't looking at porn... these popups can come from spyware!!!
Don't be too hard on them.
