Hello, yesterday when I was surfing the net on my pc (using opera) I suddenly got this weird program that I know for a fact that I've never installed. It said it was a anti-virus program and that I had...


Your best bet is to reboot into safe mode and scan the system,doing this will help ensure that program doesn't start.If after doing this you are still seeing that program you might want to try doing a system restore,try to find one that is a few days older then when the problem started.Starting a system restore can not be stopped once started so take your time when picking the restore point.
Ps.you can run the system restore when your in safe mode,I'd say doing that would be your best bet so as to ensure that program is not running.
Hope this has helped,I'll check back in a few hours to see what progress you've had,good luck

Evil anti-virus or virus?


Boot the laptop to safe mode and perform system restore to the earlier point. I am sure this will resolve your issue. I suggest you to do not download and install 2 anti virus software in one computer that will messup the computer as well. Thank you

I have a virus and stmanteec antivirus notification keeps popping up on my screen: What can I do??? Help Scan type: Auto-Protect Scan Event: Threat Found! Threat: Trojan.Zlob File: ...


If you have a virus you can not delete or if your system will not boot up correctly and you suspect a virus is the problem, a recommended solution is to start your computer in safe mode and run a virus scan. By running your computer in safe mode, non-essential processes do not start and non-core components are disabled. In other words, only the minimum necessary programs will load. Tough to remove viruses, spyware and other malware usually have no chance to run and disrupt your system and can more easily be removed.
**To run a virus scan in safe mode, you must have active anti virus software installed on your computer.
To run a virus scan in safe mode, follow these steps:
  1. If your computer is on, shut it down
