Hey. Sorry if I put this in the wrong section. I wasn't exactly sure where it goes. Ok I'm gonna admit it. I was surfing the web before looking at pictures of chicks :gasp: and then a porn pop-up came up asking me something. I didn't read what it was, but I some how managed to accidently hit enter on yes. Now here's what happened. It changed my home page to this browser secruity thing saying that my internet actions are current being monitored and my privacy is at VERY high risk etc. It also put up my IP adress. Also, I easily changed my homepage back to Google, but that isn't the point.

It had a link to a program called 'Evidence Eliminator' explaining I need it to get rid of the problem. I was bloody freaked out cause I thought I was being spyed on. But then I found an article on this site saying that it's just the company's terrible way of advertising their program. After that I felt so relieved. Anyway, I made this thread for you guys to tell me if this browser secruity thing that forced itself to my homepage is just advertisement for Evidence Eliminator.

Thanks.

Hi,

Yes, the whole thing is just a nasty way of them trying to get you to buy their sleazy software. However, I suggest you post a HiJackThis log in the Malware Removal sub-forum, in case it has left anything nasty behind on your PC.
