I posted a link in a posting over the weekend that invaded my computer. Please delete any postings that I did on October 20 and 21, as I don't want someone else to get this mess.

Apperanty, the item takes over internet explorer and opens to a particular web site and tries to sell the means to clean up the mess it made. It has not harmed the computer, but it sure is annoying. I even unloaded explorer and am using firefox, but it still will open explorer.

My adware, spyware and virus software cannot find this bugger. My computer tech has never seen this before.

thanks
