Everytime I go to download anyhthing it kicks me off the internet and the only time I can run on the computer is in safe mode but the DOS version. I dont know any of the commands to get me through this. ANything I have tried it wont even let it open and for the spyware dr i have it partially downloaded but because I have to do updates it wont work as soon as I tell it to do the updates it freezes. If there is anything else you can tell me to get this to work

    Can you go to a friend’s computer, download the spyware doctor program onto a cd then install spyware doctor onto you computer from the cd. Then run spyware doctor and see if it will eradicate this malicious program. Good luck

  4. This is really weird but I had this fake security software on my computer, but about a week later after having it on there, I started it my computer up one day and it was gone. I didn’t even have access to malwarebyte’s or my internet or anything. It just had disappeared off my computer. I don’t know what happened…

    • Nathan Kahle: trojans promoting Windows Optimization Center changed. That means that it is unlikely that they have deleted themsevles, but that they wait for new rogue to promote or new stuff to download to your PC. I would still scan your PC with decent anti-malware tools.
