A couple of hours ago while on www.facebook.com, I received notification in taskbar that AVira had upgraded. I paid little attention to it at the time, until when I tried to call up another website and I seen these large icons plastered all over my screen, icons that pertained, to Gmail, Facebook, etc. with a search bar on the top. At the toop of my screen it would show "new tab". To go on working i woould have to x it out, which woud talke me back to my search engine, in this case www.google.ca. Down on the left hand side of the screen near the strt button woul be these words: "Astromenda" What on earth is this all about. I have received no Avira.OE. Servicehost error messages yet.
