    Pictures, or it didn't happen :)

    Note - you don't have to take a picture of your own
    screen. You can use an image search engine, and find
    us an example of exactly what you're seeing.

    If you take a picture of your screen, you can post to
    imageshack.us . That's the site I use for showing pictures
    of stuff. Here's an example of the last picture I put up.
    Select "Do Not Resize", when uploading.

    If you want to search for someone else's pictures, try here.

    And if you think it's malware, you can try MBAM
    (the free on-demand scanner version, not the paid version),
    or adwcleaner. You try MBAM first. And if it is
    actually a "Potentially Unwanted Program", then try
    adwcleaner. MBAM doesn't do everything.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malwarebytes (use the free one-time-scan version)

    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/

    Good malware will prevent those from running, in which case
    there are procedures for killing the malware first, so the
    tools can load.

    And tools like Kaspersky (free boot CD, 237MB ISO9660 file),
    can be used for regular malware. This is a one-time-scan
    as well, and not a regular, full protection thing. It will
    at least identify the infection, for regular malware.

    Are you referring to MBAM ?

    According to the site, the one-time-scan is free.

    http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebyt...4572.html?part=dl-10804572&subj=dl&tag=button

    Md5SUM = 683fdd3d773c58b262dc07cd0c6ce938 *mbam-setup-1.75.0.1300.exe

    There is a Pro version that you can buy.

  9. Your machine is virally enhanced. You have managed to download an .EXE that
    repeatedly gets called by your browser. It pops up every 5-ish minutes,
    perhaps faster, and says something to the effect of WE FOUND SOMETHING NASTY
    THAT NEEDS TO BE REMOVED -- CLICK HERE, and they want $79.95 on your Visa
    card to clean it.

    If you ever, that's E-V-E-R, see a dialog that offers a free scan to look
    for nastiness in your machine, click NO.

  10. You realize that your post is the computer-based equivelent of, "I hate
    winter, what can I do?" Right?
