I posted a problem yesterday for malware called or IEPass.thief. Both keep flashing up fake security messages and obscene icons. I have posted a log with hijackthis and am awaitig a reply.

In the meantime, if I am sending e mails, could I infect other people??? Last thing I want to do!

Any advice appreciated

Download and install malwarebytes from click here

update it, restart the computer tapping e8 as it starts and choose safe mode, run malwarbytes from within safe mode.

Hi Jimv7

I have tried malware bytes and several other such softwares but with no success. Admittedly, I did not restart in safe mode. Would that have made any difference?

Any help appreciated. It's driving me nuts!

As said, run in safe mode.
