but especially this:

I have rushed and changed my IE settings to block Javascript, but some sites need it but what if it is malicious.

Try the links above, am I safe if I enable Javascript again?

Ok so the first link is a bit worring but as to the second didnt your antivirus pick up and stop the downloads?

Remember this site is trying to sell you something.

BEWARE!!!!!! The second link is a trojan.

Oops. I'm a bit slow tonight. Time to sleep I think.

BUT what about the Control panel thing, is that a Trojan?

NEED urgent help?

recommend the damn company.

The Control panel thing is a variant on a trojan script...put there to help scare you into buying their software. Your Antivirus should have caught it before it installed and given you the chance to delete it. If it didnt then either update the Antivirus or change it for a better one.

This stopped this working on my system.

Personally I think sites like this using such scare tactics need to be removed.

I have run it, where do I find this on my system and remove it?
