I just visited a site called www, wiiinjuries, net . It is a fake site and a window came up asking me to download antivirus 2009. I got a virus this way before and it almost killed my computer so I immediately switched the computer off. Despite this when I switched back on, there was a new program in ZA firewall and every time I tried to run anti-malware programme a new setup / uninstall windows appears in ZA firewall programs and it is blocked. As ZA was blocking all Malware programs I switched it off and ran Malwarebytes which detected nothing. So I uninstalled and reinstalled ZA firewall. When I tried to install, it would not let me select 'automatically receive updates' Now the ZA firewall does not let me connect to the internet for updates.
How is it that a malware so easily gets around ZA firewall. It appears it actually uses ZA firewall as part of the hijacking process. Now I am afraid that the ZA firewall I have installed is compromised. Does anyone know anything about this and how I fix it?
