I didn't realize that this was a virus because it presented itself as a spyware remover. I entered my credit card number!!!! They have charged my credit card $14,98 Cdn. and I'm concerned they now have my credit card information. What do I do? I am having my computer reformatted to get rid of it but I am now concerned about my credit card info.

Welcome frightenednewbie to Geeks to Go!

If you have any doubts, contact your creditcard company and ask for their advise.

As for your computer, we can check if there is any spyware or malware visible. Just post a HijackThis log.

Please download the latest version of HiJack This. Click here to download the latest version (1.99.1). Please save it in a permanent folder (such as C:\HJT). This is to ensure that backups are saved and accessible in the event you should need it. Follow the instructions below if you are unsure how to save it in a permanent folder:1.) Click on the link to download HiJackThis.exe.
2.) When it pulls up the box (for you to pick a location to save the file), click on the pulldown menu and select "[C:]".
3.) Click on the button to "create new folder" and name the folder HiJackThis
4.) Double click on the folder you just made (to go into the folder) and click "save" on the bottom of the box.
Then, double-click the HijackThis.exe and choose 'scan and save the log'. It will created a Notepad file. Copy and paste the content of that file and post it (using the button 'add reply') to this topic.
