wow this seems to be an epidemic
I just had something called performance optimizer do basically the same thing jsobecky was describing, pops up and takes over.
I have ad aware and run it frequently, also have PCCillin antivirus 07 edition with an aoutoscan nightly fully updated.
Somehow it seems that I have been compromised...
I halted the internet traffic as this THING was trying to go here:
//WARNING DO NOT GO TO THIS ADDRESS//
I am just posting in case someone recognizes this, it could be some kind of crazy malware:
ed:had to break up the addy so I stop the page skew
and this is the relevant details from the adaware scan:
I got rid of those but I am wondering if it is something that could still be creeping around waiting to launch again?
Anyone heard of this particular issue?
