I seem to have been infected by a malware programme that is causing pop-up security alerts. The first box is a Security Warning with the publisher given as WinServiceCorpLtd – which sound odd anyway. Given the option to run or cancel I cancelled and was presented with a series of ‘Windows Security Alerts’ saying ‘somebody’ is trying to infect your PC etc etc. I am given the option to download spyware removal for total protection or to cancel. I chose cancel. I ran a full scan with Norton Security Suite 2008 and got an all clear. Webroot Spysweeper picked up and quarantined Worm Win 32.NetBooster plus a number of cookies all of which were quarantined.
I still get the message boxes and cannot get rid of them. One side effect is that my task manager has been disabled!
Even being careful not to accept anything, I still get a download box trying to install so- called Antispyware Master.
Can anyone help to rid me of this pest please? I can if necessary type all the messages received but I doubt if that will Help as they are all spurious.
As is obvious because I am typing this, I can still, with difficulty and constant interuptions from pop up warnings of impending doom use my PC
