"Spyware" is a term used to describe software that advertises, collects personal information or changes the configuration of your computer.

Rogue anti-spyware programs are classified as "spyware."
These programs change your Internet settings and redirect your Internet searches to malicious websites.

For example, when you search for "Google," a rogue anti-spyware program might instead take you to a website selling rogue software.

Examples of rogue anti-spyware programs include Vista Defender Pro, XP Antispyware 2011 and System Restore.

Fortunately, these programs can be removed so that you can access sites like Google again.

Click "Start," then "All Programs," and then "Windows Defender" to open Windows Defender.


Click the down arrow next to the Help button. Select "Check for Updates." Windows Defender will install available updates. This may take several minutes.

Click the down arrow next to Scan and select "Full Scan" from the drop-down menu.
Windows Defender will scan your entire computer and automatically remove any spyware that it detects.

Hi! i have a acer aspire one, everytime i switch my laptop on it pops up with a privacy center and i cant get rid of it?


Privacy Center, or PrivacyCenter, is a rogue anti-spyware program designed to trick users into purchasing its full rogue version. Privacy Center looks similar to Privacy Components. Privacy Center may infect your computer through a Trojan, spam emails or it may have come bundled with another malicious program. Privacy Center sells itself as an effective spyware remover tool, however, all it does is make you believe you're infected with numerous spyware threats to offer its "licensed" program.

Go to the link below and download and run MalwareBytes Anti-Malware program. When it installs it will ask to update and run, please do both. Once it updates, run the program and perfrom a QUICK scan only. When it is through scanning it will ask you to click on the show results button. When you do that it will show you the infections it has found, make sure they are all selected and delete them. You should be malware free now.

Internet Explorer script error do you want to continue running scripts on this page? Library not registered


it could be possible that The author of the webpage you are accessing has simply made some sort of programming error and this is typically the most common reason.or that You are possibly running a pop-up killer of some kind which closes the pop-up too quickly which causes the script of the website to fail and thus giving you the error because it didnt complete.
possible You (still) have some sort of spyware or adware infection that tries to launch something such as a popup but causes script errors.
this is the most likely issue in your situation.

Solution:

1. Make sure your Anti-Virus software is up-to-date and then run a full system scan.

2. Try running a scan with other malware detection software. (Malwarebytes )

3. Be sure your are not running Rogue Anti-Virus software ( Security Center, Anti-Virus 2009, and Anti-Virus 2010).

4. Take a look into the Event Viewer to see the path of where the script is coming from. Some more detail may show up in the Event Viewer log)

5. Run windows updates and install any critical/important updates.

hope this helps

Pop up keeps asking for user name and pass word.


It sounds like you may have been infected somehow. Try running an anti-spyware and anti-virus to do a scan of your computer. Also, send a note to you email provider.

From your cryptic description, and the extremely limited details given. It sounds like you may have some spyware installed on your computer. If you have an anti-spyware program installed make sure it is NOT listed on 'The Spyware Warrior List of 
Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware Products & Web Sites'
http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm

Those are "anti-spyware programs" that install their OWN spyware, while 'supposedly' removing everything else.

Use instead "Ad-Aware 2007", "Spybot - Search & Destroy" "SpywareBlaster" are three good ones. Beware of imitations and name similarities. install and update then run them weekly.

Then stay OFF of Weird and Strange websites!  ;>)

Install McAfee SiteAdvisor.

Malware threats


What your seeing is called Adware, they are trying to make you think you are infected to buy their software to remove it.

What you need to do:
Go to www.ewido.com a reseller of AVG, download the software and run a FULL scan once complete delete the threats its finds.
