Invoice from "sex" site

I use Firefox but am plagued with a persistent invoice for £39.99 which keeps popping up on IE for access to "my sex world.com"

Being of an age where i would rather read the paper than follow the links to a sex site this is driving me mad. My 2 sons insist that they have never been on a sex site - so we must have ghosts.

This dammed thing locks itself for 2 mins and I cannot for the life of me get rid of it.

I thought i was quite security minded but cannot figure out how to kill this thing and I have no intention of paying it. It looks as though it was created on April 28th and will continue to plague me until i either pay or find someway of getting rid of it from my system.

Any suggestions please before my wife kills me

Could be this; I seem to remember the FE asking about people experiencing this but can't find the thread at the moment.

Hi, thankfully, not a 'victim' myself, but if I were to become a victim of this crime, because sure ly that is what it is - demanding money with menaces - I would head straight to my nearest Police Station and insist that they took action against the perpetrators.

I think it is now sorted but .......

I am slightly annoyed as during my attempts to disable this and get rid of the dammed thing i downloaded AVG and ran it

it found 16 nasties on my system 2 of which it informed me were trojans - it successfully got rid of them but i just wonder what in the name of god i am paying norton for which is built into my bt yahoo account

It is inadvisable to put your mail address on any Public Site.

To anyone else who has a solution:

Publish it here, there are thousands who visit who never post and if you posted it directly to "OLDBIKER" they would never know.
