Contravirus advertising malware attached to computer

Unread postby Mkadeus » July 13th, 2007, 3:14 pm

Hi my name is Mat, I could use some help. Not sure how to post my Hijack log; ---Is it already attached to this post somehow? I have a problem with this Contravirus thing that has attached it self to my computer and pops up occasionally telling me my computer is in danger unless I download their software. Some of these pop ups take you further into their advertising site when you click to close them. Thanks for any help you can give
