Got a bit of a problem with my laptop - Please help

4 replies
Found 9th Feb 2010
Yesterday I found a file on my computer in my downloads folder so I stupidly clicked it, the file didnt seem to do anything and after about 10 seconds the file dissappeared.

Today I have noticed that when im on the internet, the computer will randomly open a site - not the same site but differrent ones, the latest one is this

whiteningkitgiveaway.com/uk/…php

other ones have included news pages, and holiday sites.

I've tried to run a restore but that says not succesful, virus checker is upto date and automatically runs every so often .

Any advice guys? (apart from not to click files that I dont know about!)

Thanks in advance

Try downloading and running Malwarebytes anti-malware program. Tends to sort out a few issues like that.

+1, that or SPYBOT SEARCH & DESTROY, works wonders!
