may be responsible for unpredictable system activity such as repeated and multiple security warning pop-ups
, etc. An antivirus
can be used to eliminate the viruses or malwares to restore normal system activity. To rid the system of the Trojans, viruses or malwares
, it is recommended to run the anti-virus in the safe mode
with networking. If required, the computer can be connected to the internet and an anti-malware can be downloaded. The security and proxy setting for internet access may have to be set manually as malwares often hijack the settings
. After the viruses and malwares have been removed, the computer can be restarted normally and unpredicable security warning pop-ups
should not occur.
Security warnings pop-up
I have an HP laptop, Windows Vista. I have been trying to get rid of this virus for so long. I keep on getting these annoying security pop-ups whenever I try to open Firefox
, any program on my desktop, and even the task manager! These security pop-ups keep on multiplying. Fortunately the program I can open is my webroot antivirus...It did catch Trojan virus, and the Mal/fake virus. But it made no difference...the security warnings lead me to purchasing an "antivirone". I really need help getting rid of this.
You can try these steps:
- Reboot your computer in Safe mode with networking.
- Reset proxy settings of your browser (this malware hijacked them) by doing this: run Internet Explorer,
Click Tools -> Internet Options.
Select Connections Tab and click to Lan Settings button.
Uncheck "Use a proxy server" box.
Click OK and click OK again.
- Download Malwarebytes Anti-malware. Install, perform a scan and let it remove what it found.
Reboot afterwards (important).
