    Default pop up

    I know enough aboout computers to be danerous ( to my computer, that is ), so I've got a question for you guys.
    I keep getting internet explorer running in the background which pops up with TRENDMICRO.COM on it. Appears to be one of those anti spyware popups that if you don't buy it will not let your computer function. Even Cont/Alt/Delete won't make it go away. once it finally goes away, the computer works fine, until it pops back up again. Anybody know how to get rid of it? Forever?

    OK. Bub you got a problem. STOP!!! DO NOT RUN THIS PROGRAM... STOP!!!

    Go to Stopzilla. its going to cost you about $ 35.00 this the best spy ware will I use it and it stop this kind of crap. the type of program that is hitting your computer is a spy ware and its very damaging.

    Order Stopzilla and run it that will fix this thing but good...

    Best

    If you're running XP or Vista do a system restore... go to Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools and then System Restore.

    Go back in time to before this thing got loaded onto your system. Going back won't affect any data but will undo any programs that you loaded and some settings. You can always undo the restore if something goes wrong.

    It's a great feature of the newer OS. I'm the family computer guy and this has worked many, many times after kids or even my parents end up loading some crap on their computer.

    And best of all... it's free.

    Check out Kaspersky Anti virus software. It has complete anti-virus, spy ware, ad ware protection. It is the one my computer guy recommends. He says it is better than Norton, McAffee and others. I had lots of stuff slowing down my computer and bought this to clean it up almost a year ago and have never had any problems since. Great product and one purchase protects up to three systems for an entire year.
    I tried Stopzilla and a few other programs that did not get the job done... Highly recommend Kaspersky.

    Trend Micro is a legit company. I would contact them and ask how to stop the problem. they are providers of anti-virus and spyware software. You must have used one of their programs to have a popup.
