Have got flying saucers exploding across screen whilst on line. There is also what looks like two tents just below the tab line. A message then appears---press ctrl/alt and a -to quit/start game.
What game and how did it get there? Is this a virus? I would value advice as to how to get rid of this. Thanks
How to take a screenshot, paste it into Paint program, click here When you have done that give it a name save it as a .jpg (make sure it is easy to find)
Decide which free image hosting website you want to use (google for one - I use Imageshack.com but there are plenty of others to choose from) Upload your screenshot .jpg and copy the Direct Link url web address that you will be given. Paste the Direct Link url into your post on here and then type 5 spaces before you type any more text (it will change to a 'click here' after you have clicked on 'Post'
Note: "type 5 spaces before you type any more text " this is because of the peculiarities of this forums formatting - if you don't type the spaces you end up with first word getting moved to the end of your post. We've learnt to live with it :))
I recently bought a new computer as Windows XP is now defunct. I chose Windows 7 as this seemed to be the preferred way to go for a Desktop m/c.
I too have been suffering that annoying exploding flying saucer traversing across the screen when surfing the internet. This would occur whether I used Internet Explorer or Firefox search engines.
I could not believe only two people have had the same experience.
Anyway the good news is that I have tracked it down to a program that somehow got on to my hard drive and that is Rasteroids. I deleted it and those stupid Flying saucers have exploded for the last time .... fingers crossed.
Another program that gave me a huge amount of grief was Adobe Reader which was a surprise and that too I've deleted. Hope this helps any others plagued with this problem.
