Do you mean the IE top blue bar? Because it is fixable in the regedit.

Find a key on Window Title and read it's value.I was infected with the same thing last time because of a hidden extension VBS coding in my pc. Hope it helps. :thumbsup:

regedit is registery edit. Go to start-run and type regedit. You should find a window with lots of registery lines. Go to lines that I've mentioned and see whether you can edit the window blue bar title with your own name :flowers: It's fun yet, if you are infected with a vbs virus, changing it is not the 100% solution but if it is edited by another individual, so it is done.Good luck

Np.Glad it helps :thumbsup:

CAUTION: Always back up your registry before making any changes. If you are not familiar with working in the registry, then you should NOT attempt to make any changes on your own. Improper changes to the registry could adversely affect your computer and render it inoperable.

Download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free for Home Users in "SAFE MODE.

Download and scan with Dr.Web CureIt. Follow the instructions here for performing a scan in "safe mode".

Then perform this online Virus scan: Trend Micro Housecall <- Use "Autoclean" and manually delete what it can't clean.
[Watch the Address bar in IE. You may receive alerts that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Install ActiveX component.]
