The easiest way that I've found to get rid of this virus is to install a program called Malwarebytes. Shut down your computer and (assuming you've a PC) press F8 before the Windows icon appears. This'll bring up a boot screen, press the down button until you reach the section that boots the computer up in "Safe Mode" - then press the enter/return button. Once your computer is loaded up into Safe Mode run the Malwarebytes program - use the "full scan" option. It'll take a while to do the scan, but the program will find the virus and you can delete it.

hope this helps! :-)

    oh, and if your IM buddy's name is coming up with the link tell them to follow those directions and it'll stop the random link IMs.

The video called the "Dance of the Pope". Is this a virus that can corupt my mobile?


This is all i can find on the internet about this.......
ORIGIN:In early April 2015, several rumors warning mobile phone users of a malware attachment known as the Dance of the Pope (later Dance of the Hillary) began to circulate. Many versions claimed the Dance of the Pope was an infected attachment (often a GIF or video), and that users who opened the file using services such as BlackBerry Messenger or WhatsApp risked the loss of all their cell phone data.
A common thread in the rumors was its source: most claimed the Dance of the Pope virus was reported on the radio. Although most mentioned that the virus was discussed on the radio, none said that the posters themselves had heard it. Folks spreading the rumor believed others had heard about the virus on the radio; but none of the major versions involved the person spreading the rumor having personally listened to a news report.
We found no information suggesting the Dance of the Pope virus warning was anything but a rumor. No radio stations were linked to the purported announcement; no news outlets reported the story; none of the antivirus companies had heard of it; and, most tellingly, no one appeared to have experienced the virus on his own device. If the virus were real, many users would have encountered and unwittingly opened the attachment despite the circulating warning by now.

Window keeps popping out


When it pops up again, try pressing Ctrl+Alt+Delete and go to the task manager.
Then select the application for it, right click and press go to process.

Then, right click that process and click 'End process tree'.

Hope that works. It works for me when a window keeps popping up but have never had it ask to open a file.

Hi I have a security shield that keeps poping up telling me I have a trojan and a worm 38mof them. My McAfee tells me my computer is fine. But I can`t open up pages because this shield keeps poping up and...


A fella at work had this happen to his profile.
I fixed it for him.
I found http://www.2-viruses.com/remove-security-shield
on the above page it talks about putting in an activation code ( 64C665BE-4DE7-423B-A6B6-BC0172B25DF2 ) to the Security Shield app which shuts down the Security Shield and stops it from popping up.
Then you can delete it.
run some cleanup software

Yes its malware - do not click on the link or your contact list will be infected and all your contacts will be getting the same message

If you haven't clicked on the link just continue to ignore the message the same as the other one going around "Is this your photo?" and a link

If you want to run a check on Messenger - download the free Malwarebytes

It will deal with anything it finds without having to purhase the pro version

To keep safe do not open any links in Messenger without running a check on them

Sounds like you have spyware, adware, and maybe even a virus. Try using lavasofts ad-aware personal edition, or spybot search and destroy, or avg anti virus. To get rid of the infection. If that doesn't work maybe try Norton or you might have to re-install windows. Sorry try those and see what you can find. Hope this helps. M~
