Users about Antispyware Soldier
Gullio Aug 6 2006, 03:01 AM - As of today, I've come
to be infected with an extremely annoying adware/spyware.
the program starts by popping up a message on the lower
right corner of the screen that says "windown security
center alert!" and then tells me that there is
spyware installed in my computer. Furthermore, the program
also continiously gives me pop-ups claiming that I have
a bunch of spy-ware files installed on my computer.
After the lower right corner pop-up appears, it re-directs
my IE to 'http://antispynet.com/'. The web-page almost
forces me to download 'anti-spyware soldier'. This,
again, happens in a very continious fashion.
