I've just completed a scan with Malwarebytes, and it's found this: [IMG]click here[/IMG]

Is it a virus, if so, how do I delete it, and also, I have kaspersky internet security, anyone have any idea how it got past it?

Info. Has also got removal instructions. If you can get malwarebytes or kaspersky to do it automatically that would be the better option.

Thanks for your advice

I've no idea what I'm doing as my computer knowledge is zero, however, I've downloaded and run what you suggested, it's completed a scan, but now it's asking me for a fee [IMG]click here[/IMG]

Not sure what I should be deletting / removing.

When you ran Malwarebytes, the screen showed a 'remove selected'. That should do it for free!

Hi oldbeefer

Thanks, I've deleted as you suggested, run another Malwarebytes scan, and it seems to be clean.


Thanks for your advice, I only use Malwarebytes and Kaspersky, I did a Kaspersky scan and it found nothing, only Malwarebytes found it, I'm doing another Kaspersky scan and see what if anything it produces.

Thanks guys for the help.

Following on, I just ran another Kaspersky virus scan, and it found this:

I take it that's been deleted also?

Yes, it's been deleted by Kaspersky.

I should clarify that in my post @ 12.52, I hadn't intended for you to download and install the anti-virus software that the site linked to. It was only meant for information and manual removal instructions.

Malwarebytes and Kaspersky should be perfectly sufficent to keep your PC clean.

OK OTT_Buzzard

Thanks for your help.
