Downloading something for no cost. I should have known better, there's no such thing as a free lunch. Out of the blue I have notification of virus infection. At the same time WWW. Virus Bursters.com pops up with a solution. Thank goodness I just stopped before downloading it. I think ive got rid of the viruses if there were any with the help of AOL ans Macafee but Im still getting Virus Bursters popping up all the time.

Just follow the steps carefully and you should easily be able to remove it.

Hey guys,

I'm new here. I followed the instructions to remove Virus Bursters, but I have a problem with my Disk Cleanup...it has never worked before...always stalls at the initial "Calculating how much space you'll be able to free" (just the initial three green bars) even for hours! However, SmitFraudFix, after the initial removal of the temp files immediately went on to ask if I'd want to clean up my registry, to which I typed "y"...the system however did not automatically ask for restart. I did it manually and now the adware is gone. Did a scan with NoAdware and found no more Trojanpopup file in the pc... Just wondering if this means it's resolved...?

Thanks! Would appreciate your comments and feedback.

:-)
