Howdy, I work in the IT department for a decently sized company in Phoenix, AZ and this one is stumping me. Kinda urgent so quick help is appreciated.
I'm getting these pop up notifications in the bottom right of the tool bar saying that the computer is infected with (insert fictional program here) Click to remove and it keeps taking me to this AntiSpyLab website telling me to pay to download their program and get rid of the virus.
It seems to have taken over. The default page for internet explorer is now the antispylab page and it will not let you click to change any of the settings for IE.
This machine is running XP Pro Service pack 2. its all updated.
So far I've run Adaware and Symantec AntiVirus from safe mode. Adaware keeps picking things up and deleting them each time I run it, but proving unsucessful in my issue.
Has anyone else experienced this? How else can I get rid of this program/virus/trojan whatever it is. Thanks
