Help!!! Computer question...
Just singed on and had a warning window pop up saying my
PC was infected with a virus and named it Spyware???
WTF is this s h i t ...?
I know about spy software for computers, but I don't see how
anyone could have installed it on my PC I just used it this morning
and it was fine and then tonight this virus warning pops up???
I have Windows XP and it simply had a box to click to delete it and
I did and it said it was deleted???
I did a search on my harddrive & files using the name as the search
keyword and found nothing...
I have never heard of any B.S. like this and I'm pretty sharp with
computers, but have no clue what this is...
Does anyone know what the f u c k this s h i t means???
I'm paranoid enough as it is... I don't need this s h i t!!!

Sorry bro....no idea. What kind of anti-virus software do you have?

Did your anti viral software Quarantine the infected file or did you delete?

I have had problems with this in the past. I would advise that you install a program such as Ad-aware (which is free) and run it fairly often. I've not had any problems since I installed it on my computer.

most of the time spyware is on peoples computer, they dont know about it, (hence the name spyware) msot likely it is there from a program u installed such as kazaa or something like that....

There's a possibility that it was actually an internet explorer pop up that was made to look like a windows warning in order to get you to download whatever the website wanted you to. I recommend going to cnet and getting spybot.

Spybot, easy. I use it on all of my servers and have no conflicts and no problems either. One of the greatest programs available. And it is free!!

I have Norton Antivirus and Norton Internet Security software...
I know the Internet Security software has a **** good firewall, so I'm
not sure what the f**k is up...
I've never had a problem with any virus bull s h i t except for once when I had a secure email and thought I knew who it was from and got that **** klez worm virus...

Never installed Kazaa bro... I stay after from all that crap... This PC is strictly for AR activities...
Is spyway the same kind of program as EBlaster where someone can track you online activity???

i use the combo of spywareblaster and spybot, together they keep out everything, i also have norton professional firewall installed, but the spy sh*t is way better, you just have to make sure you update it about every two weeks or so

No it didn't quarantine it Mass
Just had a window stated my PC was infected and had a
window with an option to click & delete the virus...
Strange ass s h i t...
I get real nervous with all that ****...
For awhile I was getting trojan horse warning every 15 mins
about 6 months ago or so... I always think the worse, know
what I mean???
