  1. This showed up right after I got rid of the “Your PC Protector” malware earlier today. That’s gone for now, but this new item seems to work on whatever web site I am attempting to use.

    It may explain the rash of “pop-ups” that have been plaguing me lately.

    What do you recommend I do? Please be specific.

    Thanks for posting this item.


  2. Chuck : Do a full system scan with any reputable remover (better 2 of them). Then check proxy settings (disable any proxy) and hosts file (clean it ).
