    I have this Trojan myself and nothing is working. My spybot s & d found it but it wont let me delete it. I can’t get into safe mode and i cant get to control panel, cant restore. I’m so frustrated!

  3. Sheila says:

    That sounds good, but it’s all the website I want to go to. And I never had these problems until a week ago. What else could cause this?

  4. precisesecurity says:

    It was a rogue program causing that and not the website you are trying to visit. This malware will embed a code on your Internet Browser and blocks it from visiting another website with its own webpage.

  5. NEED HELP says:

  9. Dave says:

    Somehow we got this nasty “This website has been reported as unsafe” browser hijack malware. I downloaded mbam-setup to a flash stick and called it a.exe using another computer. I then ran the free program on the infected computer and ran the scan. It appears that it got rid of the problem!

  10. Anthony says:

    Yeah but I hate that when you see any good anti spyware and anti virus, at the end, it scans everything, letting you know how much infections you have. Then, at the last step, it tells you to pay $50+ to register. Im like what the F@%#. It doesn’t do anything and just scans your computer.

  11. Anthony says:

    And just to let you all know, I have, I think, downloaded every Free anti virus+ spyware protection. In the end, it just makes my computer way slower, and the internet comes up like 5 minutes after you clicked the internet icon. It doesn’t get rid of any infections I have on my computer. It makes me frustrated >:l

    I tried downloading My Wonderful Farm (Fast Download)
    & (High Speed). Microsoft alerted me that the site has been
    reported as unsafe as it has links to viruses that could
    infect your computer and has links to getting your personal
    details, they showed 1 Trojan it downloads. I filled out
    their comment box plus security code: 606054, double checking
    I’d typed it correctly, I had, their next window reported:
    “An error has occured! The security code is incorrect.” It
    wasn’t. The trouble is I’d filled out my name, using 1st
    initial, surname & email address before finding out it’s an
    unsafe site. I’ll keep an eye on my email, anything from them
    will be treated as SPAM!!


    My warning DON’T go on: (Soft Catalog)

    You want the best Internet security. I have the Free Trail running of Avast! Internet Security. I have been running it for free for 6 month now.

    Here is how to get it for free all the time.

    1)Download hxxp:// (You will see why)

    2) download the Free trail of Avast! Internet Security. (Not the Free Anti-virus).

    Now say you had the Avast program for thirty days, all you have to do is go delete it first. Then go to Ccleaner program and clean out the registry files.

    Then reinstall the AVS program (Using Firefox will place the program in the Download file).

    The company forgots to record your IP address or your computer ID. So you can do thing until they get wind of it.

  26. suresh subedi says:

    in my computer i instulled bullgaurd internet security ,and its shows 5 unsafe software, so i dont know what to do then?

  27. Mikhailovich says:

    I’m having a similar issue, and thus far I can’t see any apparent other affects from the virus/aware. However not being able to access the internet is a severe issue for me. I wish to download Ccleaner and Avant. If there is a best program I would have to pay for I am willing to do it. Obviously being unable to access the internet I need to transfer those files from another computer. How do I do this?
