Windows 7: side bars & prizes

05 Jun 2013   #1

side bars & prizes

Hi, I am having trouble with side bars loading & notices that i have won some sort of a prize.
this causes the computer slow to load an application as these two seem to have to load first.
then after a while i get a message that comes up internet explorer has stopped working.
i have stopped POP UPS by clicking on internet options & stopping Popups. but this has not had any effects.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Windows 7 Pro. 64/SP-1

Sounds like a infection to me. I would recommend going to our Security Thread on this Forum.

Win-7 Home Prem 64-bit 7601 Free SP1

You can use these free tools to see if they find anything,
Manually Update them before running full scans,
Try not to use your computer while the scans are running, (one at a time of course).

This one is the longest up to 4 hours, the others are only about 45 minutes,
