False Antivirus Issues

Post by geek planet on 28th November 2009, 3:15 am

There is a program called "Eco Antivirus" on my operating system. Obviously, I didn't voluntarily download this software; it simply installed itself. Also, fake alerts are continuously popping up on my screen in 15 minute intervals. Finally, false alerts are popping up while I'm browsing, which include "This website is a reported Phishing site!".

Anyway, I will comply to *any* downloads that may be required for your assistance. Since I don't know how to obtain the most recent version of HiJack This, I'll need a legitimate link from a moderator.

Finally, once my problem is dealt with, I ask that the assisting moderator give me some recommendations/links to obtain software that increases the level of security on my operating system.

Thank you,
Geek Planet
