Hey guys I'm from Italy and i need your help.
While i was on the phone with my girlfriend she was surfing through some lyrics sites, and i suppose she clicked on some of the links.
After a while she calls me back telling me that she got this:

I told her to do a virus scan with avast, but since it's very late she did the fast one, and she'll be doing the scan upon turning on the computer tomorrow.
Do any of you know how to remove this? Is it something that we can solve without any data loss?
In a couple of words, do we have to worry??

Hello screamieri,

Welcome to Geekstogo.

Those images are usually put there by rogue anti-malware programs. They come with infection.

If it were my machine I would go to self help section and follow the steps there to check that my computer was clean?

In any event you need to go there before you come here.Posted Image

If you read the thread there you will see step by step instructions to help fix infection.

After that if your machine still has problems come back and post the necessary logs.

Or, if your machine can't run the tools there come back and tell me.

The link below will take you there.
