When starting Mozilla Firefox this afternoon I've received a message that appears to be from Windows Security Centre saying ....Anti Virus Alert...Your system has undergone an intrusion of a spyware...your anti-virus does not protect your computer from this kind of threat. It then suggests I scan the computer using the scan key at the foot of the screen.I haven't done anything other than deleting the page in case it isn't genuine. I have AVG Free edition installed and ad aware. Can anyone suggest the follow up? Thanks.
Thanks for suggestions. Before VoG™ 's suggestion of installing SuperAntispyware came through I was already scanning the whole system with AVG. No threats were detected. At end of scan I rebooted and the 'Windows Security' page again came up when Mozilla Firefox page was activated. After installing and running SuperAntispyware over 200 items were highlighted!!! I quarantined all, rebooted and again the 'Windows Security' page came up, this time suggesting that a Mata Hari and Alexa threat might be on the computer. Not sure what to do now.
Thanks, both of you. Sorry for delay in reply. I'm having trouble getting on internet as Mozilla wasn't opening. I tried bluto 1's suggestion and re-installed Mozilla but internet is not coming on when Mozilla icon is being clicked. Got in another way and will now try VoG™'s HJT move. Thank you again.
