Hey Im new here, and have a good sense of computer knowledge...seeing my brother is a Information Systems designer for delta dental. but im not as smart as him, so im coming to you guys, who seem to know their stuff. recently, i have been getting pop-ups that are from Driver cleaner. com, errorsafe.com, system doctor.com & winantispyware.com. I cant seem to find how to delete them, but they are only warnings right now; and i havent been stupid enough to click on their "fake" warnings. I was wondering how to fix this? Thanks

What OS (Win XP/2000, etc) are you using? What type of anti-virus are you using and when was the last time you ran a scan? Have you performed any anti-spyware scans? Have your tried doing your scans in "SAFE MODE"?

Driver cleaner, errorsafe, system doctor & winantispyware are all bad programs made by WinSoftware, Ltd. Many malware programs can be uninstalled by using "Add/Remove Programs" in Control Panel so start there first. Questionable programs are installed into their own Program folder and have recognizable names. For a list of such programs see BC's Uninstall Programs Database.

If nothing bad is listed, see the self-help tutorial How To Remove Winfixer/Virtumonde/Msevents/Trojan.vundo.

Post back if your still having problems after doing this.
