My sister phoned last night in a panic - a web pop-up told her that her PC was at risk, and she believed it and acted on it, with the result that she now has these two programs running on her PC, producing all kinds of security warning messages, unwanted web pages, and prompts to buy the full version.

She's bringing her PC to me later today. Obviously I can attempt to uninstall the two programs, and run the usual set of adware, spyware and virus checks, but I wondered first whether anyone here has experience of these programs and can give any insight into what I could be facing...

Thanks

it depends how the warning arrived,it may well have been via the windows messenger service which could be open,if so close it via add/remove.
