Question about Acer Aspire 3690-2196 Notebook
Can anyone advise me what this is as it is not enabling me to go on many websites and any assistance would be very much appreciated, i just keep getting HTTP 404 message and then a pop upm displaying the tiny proxy thing!!
I'm so happy I figured this out!
In firefox, go to tools, options, advanced, then under Network, click settings. Then select No Proxy. That should disable the virus. This MAY need to be done after disabling it in task manager.

C:\program files\tinyproxy. there is a hiddenf ile in there called tinyproxy.exe. It takes over your browser so if you have something stiopping it from execting then you will not be able to get on the internet at all! let it run and google gets redirected to other websites when you click on searched links.
Havent found out how to get rid yet, nor have the anti spyware softwares- unless somebody knows something I dont!

Your PC is infected. The file called TINYPROXY.EXE is considered unsafe and there may be other infections on your PC.
You should urgently check your PC and remove any malicious software including TINYPROXY.EXE as soon as possible. Use Spybot S&D to scan and get rid of it, it's Free.http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/
