sure sign that you're infected


Please go to the malware forum in my signature and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.

just for all involved here...

WinAntiVirus 2005 winantivirus.com
winsoftware.com
softwareprofit.com aggressive advertising (1, 2, 3, 4); false positives work as goad to purchase; inappropriate collection of Personally Identifiable Information; same company as WinAntiSpy 2005, WinAntiSpyware 2005, & WinFixer [A: 5-21-05 / U: 9-4-05]

lumped in with winfixer and the like...
