    Winweb security has somehow magically attached itself as a program to my computer-
    I have never downloaded this program and am unable to remove it with my scanware.
    I use my computer for university and now am unable to post correctly as pop up boxes appear every 2 minutes!

Hello install this program from here:

This free version works great.
Preform a full scan, when installed.
This is also the best free malware remover available !!!!!!

You might have to run the program in failsafe mode by pressing F8.

Install also a better free anti virus program like this:

Please uninstall the old antivirus program, before you install
Microsoft Security Essentials.
Mse it`s not useing so much of the pc`s memory to operate.

Your windows version must be valid, to use mse.

Good luck

Copy the exe file and number in Look in: My Computer along with Winweb then exe file #
4 files come up
shift and delete to remove files
I had to chg the adm of file. I think I got to it by left click on the exe file and go down to properties and rt click.
One I changeg that, I was able to delete and restart and it was gone.
No virus scan, Window Care One and another virus scan product showed no virus.
Some guy basically had fiqured and I thank him. My computer had to be figured out by me.

Go here and download the Malware Byttes Anti-Malware Trial Application. That removes all of those Fake Virus Alerts. Just make sure you delete all system restore points aswell when the malware is removed, as otherwise it will just creep back in on the system.

Pop-ups are not annoying but may damage your system if you don't get rid of them timely. Research shows that pop-ups may distribute malware or other malicious programs. Be careful! Usually, pop-ups are generated by adware program. So in first step, you should check your installed programs and uninstall any suspicious programs. If the pop-ups still appears and disturbs your browsing history, you can reset your browser to default settings to stop them.
