Constant WIndows popup security alerts
Last night I evidently got this malware on my machine. It now constantly popups messages, which have no way to close them (no X, cannot right click and pick close, cannot even MOVE them from where they are on the screen) the only option is to cick upgrade your protection, which then launches an IE window and goes to web sites like porno.org, adult.com, or viagara.com.
I immediatly disconnected from the internet, and started a Full scan. I have updated files from about an hour before (last night about 7 pm) and Norton finds NOTHING.
I am sort of a novice user, I did searvh a lot about this and I see it has been around for a LOOOONG time... I also see downloading MALWARE on another thread...
Does anyone have any other suggestions on how to claen this up? I have Vista.
I see that I now have a new user on my maching, that NORTON 360 allowed to be created with new security permissions, called LOVTSYSGUARD. I also get CONSENT.EXE is infected, along with a lot of other files same message.
I get Windows security alert with ..."Click here for the scan you computer..." popping up all the time.
Your help is much appreciated!!!
