I use McAfee secuity suite and a few days ago it said I had Adware-180SA, it removes it, but the next scan I do it's back again.I am getting so many screen size popups, although i downloaded popup stopper which is very good, it's driving me round the bend, as I've never had a problem with them before. Is there a way to permanantly remove it or find out how it got there so I could delete that pogramme, if that would work.I read somewhere to turn off system restore first, I did but still it's here again.I would appreciate any advice.
I think it is from something I've downladed. I put Superantispyware on, it found a few things but didn't show the one I'm concermed about, although I had deleted it through McAfee. but I'm getting popups blocked as I type this.so it'll prob be back on next scan. Is it OK o run more than one antispy?
It means that the security suit should be up to date. McAfee also shows to disable sys restore, run security apps, then start sys restore again. I see you've already done this. Did you run SAS in safe mode? As this seems neither trojan nor virus then maybe a visit a speciallist mallware removal site. Such as; click here
I'm running it now in safe mode.I wanted to be sure it was showing up.When It's finished do I have to do anything or will it automatically go back to normal start? Not sure what Buteman meant by avatars. If this doesn't work then I'll try that other link you gave.
