View Full Version : popup scumware in my browser
04-08-2002, 04:48 AM
some code was added to my computer I think it's running in task manager, got it off some website by mistake said yes on the signature thing/download thing. What it does is popups a few popup windows every couple of minutes, I think originally sites like yahoo or clickquick were doing these popups but turns out it was this program running in the background, so what should I do, if I know what the name of the program is in the task manager, how can I go about finding out where the program is on the computer or how it gets called on the startup of the computer? Thanks.

If you ctrl-alt-del and see what it is that is running I or one of us would more than likely be able to help. Short of that I would suggest downloading Ad-Aware from lavasoft.
