    Default I have got Antivir installed on my comp! Help!

    Hello all,
    Was merrily surfing the net last night when a window came up that looked exactly like the other windows on my comp, and was telling me it was from Microsoft... alerting me to the fact that I had several viruses, etc, and I needed to click on it to get rid of them.

    Stupidly, I did, and now the darn thing is in my comp, hiding somewhere, and my ZoneAlarm can't find it, or thinks it isn't a threat, but it keeps popping up with alerts to make me buy the full version. (Yeah, right).

    Can anyone tell me how to get this thing out of my comp, and is it stealing my passwords, etc whilst it is on here???

    Thanks for that, Fax. :-)

    So I don't have to worry that its spying on me, etc. Its just a scam trying to make me part with my money?

    Will get on and get this thing of my comp asap.

    Thanks again. :-)

    In principle yes, but you cannot exclude the opening up to other threats including password and identity stealers. Faster you clean better it is
