Windows fake security alert-can't get to internet

Post by hiway on Sun 17 Oct 2010, 12:55 am

First topic message reminder :

I have Windows Vista on my laptop. I accidentally clicked on an add and suddenly the windows alert box popped up everywhere. Will not let me get to the internet to download Malware Byte to get rid of it. Tried safemode but no go. Crash dumping HELP!!

NOTE: Was able to control alt delete at start up and stop the malware long enough to reach the internet to download Malware-Bites can't scan it though because the security alerts keep popping up and will not allow it. HELPPPPP!

For some reason the computer will not allow me to uninstall Java SE Runtime Environment 6 or the updates 3 and 5. Any idea why or what I should do? I did uninstall Adobe and Firefox. Going to install the updates in a min.

Thank you so much for all your help.

That worked! What is now installed is Java 6 Update 33 and Java SE Runtime Environment 6. Hope that is up to date.

I think I'm all set now. You have no idea how very much I appreciate your help. You are a genius!
