I have laptop which after switching on gives a message saying this:
"Error#317 - Microsoft Windows Security Warning
Your Windows is corrupted with spyware virus. You must patch your PC urgently to protect your system. Private info is accessed by ports -8080, -3128. You can patch your PC for free now and delete all spyware viruses. Clcik OK to choose and download free spyware removal using AntiSPY"
First I doubt it is an official Microsoft message, and also, after starting up in Safe Mode I have scanned the hard disk with Ad-Aware Prof 6, Norton Anti-Virus, PAL Spyware Remover, Pestpatrol 4, SpywareBlaster, System Mechanic 5 Prof and they have come up with nothing.
After a while a load of porn web pages keep popping up which are hard to get rid of. Another windows tell me I have winSterHJK v.2011. How can I get rid of this nonsense?
I am getting very similar warnings appearing and have also run spyboy etc. but I cannot get Internet Explorer to connect.Other programmes will connect i.e. LIve update from Symantec and other programs that dont use I.E. Has my browser been hijacked or has something changed a setting I dont know of?
