I opened I/E this morning, and got a pop-up to download "New free software" From Internet Explorer. When I tried to cancel it I couldn't. somehow it got in to my computer I ran Norton A/V and it picked up 10 trojans instaled. A name on one "byteverify" does anyone know of this. I managed to isolate and delete the ofending items (I think) through Norton. but I am now afraid to open I/E in case it appeares again. I am running this through Opera.
I use the M/S firewall, and I managed to read a bit about it on the web. Just a word of warning in case someone else gets this pop-up, DON'T try to delete it by clicking on the red cross, it just installs the damm thing.
