[size="4"]This morning while surfing I got some anti virus messages from MacAfee saying thingsere isolated. I decided to reboot. When I did my bacground loaded, a pic of a friend, and before any program could load to the desk topor to the task bar up popped an advert claiming to protect me from harmful cookies with a distinctky RUssian accent, female sounding voice, speaking in English about register ow for protection. It does not allow me to close the window, use task manager. Task mananger message says System AAdmin has turned it off.
Then hundreds, seems it is at least of the Admin message pop up until I am able to close them all. At which point I can only use hte cursor to close this advert. Nothing else loads and no icons appear.
