Yes malware bytes is the cure. i do this for a living even when i have to offer people software the cable companies,landline phone companies,etc.give away as part of a virus removal service.my choice is voluntary to offer the "other products" or my own suggestions. malware bytes is a manual program which keeps it kinda hidden so it works better than "any" other program.works great in safe mode too.if you get a really nasty virus another quick fix ...partition the drive load your favorite os and go after it.then move everything over after scanning.works like a charm.

That security alert is most likely one of the false positives that are running around the internet.
They tell you that you have a virus and then want you to pay them to get rid of it where in actual fact the only virus you have is them.
Try downloading, installing and running "malwarebytes" I have used this application many times to rid machines of the nonsense you are seeing.

To Remove ?Your Computer Might Be At Risk? Message from your computer tray


Continuing our HOW TO series,we’ll look at how to remove ‘Your Computer Might Be At Risk’ alerts coming up in the tray icon on Windows XP based PCs.
If you disable/turn off the default ‘Windows Firewall’ or if you turn off Automatic Updates(Not Recommended) or if you don’t have any updated anti-virus program running on your Windows XP based computer,you would see some annoying message/alert coming at the tray icon of your PC.
It is actually intended to alert the user,however many PC users find it annoying.
So follow the below points to turn it off.
Navigate to Start>Settings>Control Panel>Security Center
Once you’ve launched the security center,look at the left hand side of the window.
Look for the ‘Change the way security center alerts me’ under ‘Resources’ tab.
Uncheck all the options to completely turn off the security center alerts.That’s all,You’re done.
Note:However,it is Always highly recommended to turn on your firewall/automatic updates and update your anti-virus program.

I keep getting a virus alert and when I ask to remove viruses it brings me to a page to buy virus protection. I already have virus protection on Windows. What can I do to resolve this annoying problem...


You are infected with a Trojan or Malware. The pop-ups are bogus.. You are only infected with the product they are trying to sell you. What is the name of the Virus Protection they are trying to sell you? First thing to do is restart your computer in Safe Mode and run all your security scans. See it they find the culprit.If not post back,

Windows security alert keeps popping up. antivirus software alert keeps popping up. have mcafee antivirus but it says application cannot be executed. file is infected.


Hi,
Sounds like you have a XP virus. Turn your computer on and go into "safe mode with networking". once connected to the internet go to cnet.com. Go to the download tab for windows. Then download and install "malwarebytes".
Install the program and run it, this should take out the malware. If succesful, go to your computer icon, right click and then select properties. Turn of system restore and restart your computer. This will remove all the nasties. Remember to turn on system restore after this is completed.

Vista... I am getting a message that I have a security problem. How do I correct this when Norton Protection Center is not detecting this and is up to date


Security alerts on Windows Vista Monitors the following :

  • Anti -virus status
  • Anti - Malware Status
  • Windows Firewall
  • Automatic Updates
  • User Account Control
  • Automatic updates
Make sure that all of those are up to date and enabled, if one of those on the list is not enabled or up to date, Windows Will give you a warning that there is a security problem on the computer. Go to control panel and go to the security center settings to check :

**Note : If you see a fake alert like the image below, it is an infection and you need to remove it :
