  • Computer virus.

    I was looking for a video converter the other night on the internet, and I got stuck with one of the latest virus' and malware thingies.
    Its called search.us.com and takes over web browsers

    I did a google to see how to get rid of it as Norton cant even see it.
    This malware sets itself as your default search engine and garners all your info that you put into it like browser history and passwords etc.

    If you get stuck with it DO NOT use the new search engine.
    Do a google on it to see what damage it is doing to your computer.

    I half got rid of it manually but ended up having to buy a malware remover.
    I pity anyone who isnt as computer savvy as I am, they will be stuck with it.

    It's pretty frustrating isn't it? These guy's could easily make 6 figures doing something constructive. I had something jump on my laptop a few weeks back. Ended up loading Malwarebytes, spyware blaster, and spybot search and destroy. I feel like I am searching the web inside a condom.

    If at first you don't succeed... Skydiving isn't for you.

      Malwarebytes, thats what Ive just bought, I must get spybot again , I used to have it a while ago before a HD died, but you know how it is with forgetting what software you have..
