I was browsing ATS on my laptop, an ad with black text on a white background popped up, hijacked my browser, and now I have a virus I can't get rid of and spyware I can't get rid of. This is pretty damn frustrating.

I ran Adaware and Avast, restarted my computer, but the virus and the spyware are still there.

It has hijacked my computer. I can't open the internet browser, or even task manager.

Can you please... remove this ad from the site. How is this happening? Why are spyware and virus ads on ATS???

In the meantime I have to figure out how to save all my data before it's all corrupted.

Your wasting your time if you are running your anti virus in regular windows.

Boot up in safe mode and then run your software...

It will get rid of it.

He does take everyone of these quite serious.
