Unhappy Sigh...is this a virus?

Normally my internet doesn't crash much (lately) but today its been crashing every 5/20min and something keeps popping up saying something about mozilla and a corrupt file Right about the time it pops up, my net crashes. DH has done 2 virus scans already this month and the last one came back w/12 viruses it found (fyi: when it crashes i cant get on internet explorer either)

And if it is a virus, how can I get rid of it? Just run another virus scan????

Re: Sigh...is this a virus?

This site (the ad/spyware from it) infected my system so badly!!! I finally got it all taken care of with a new security system (took me over 4 hours ).

Call the support line for the system you have on your computer and have them help you out..

Re: Sigh...is this a virus?

I really have no idea-all I know is my computer was totally jacked up. I would get wierd error msgs and I couldn't even get on IE. My mom's computer geek friend came over and said I had virus and had to do some sort of system recovery and erase everything on my computer. I was sad for the past week-all my family pics were on my computer.GL!

I think it has something to do with this site. Since joining this site Mozilla and something called Historysweeper pops up. And everytime I log off a pop up says that a virus is detected. I just close the pop ups because this computer is just for browsing, when I get ready to purchase something I get the person's addy then get on my laptop to log into paypal.

we got the virus too- took my husband about 7 hours of research online from his work computer to recover it so we could get all our pics off. Praise the Lord! This virus did not show up on our virus scans...
