Windows 7: What is privacy protection? Fake virus program?

So I just tried to get Malwarebytes on my other computer and I do not see it doing anything, it asks if I want to download it, yet when I click the link I see no difference. Is this the correct thing to use:

Malwarebytes

that is the Webpage I am on

Also I called the # here:

http://www.spyware-experts.com/priva...FUXf4Aod13dITQ

they said $99 to fix it. Is this legitimate?

That's why I said to install malwarebytes with a usb key. And don't forget, you have to kill the virus service before it loads or it won't allow you to install malwarebytes.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, it's probably best to reinstall.

Hi,

Please follow the link I posted, or go directly to www.malwarebytes.org. Then under products, select the free version.

Since you are downloading from a different PC, you shouldnt have problems downloading it.

See below.

Most of those rogue viruses won't let you do that Golden. Especially if he can't even right-click.

That's about what I charge. The reason it's so expensive is that your system settings are probably hosed. Trust me, if your settings are that gone, it's better to reinstall.

I apologize for my many questions, but I do not see how I get malwarebytes onto the USB. I have two laptops here. The one WITHOUT the issue is what I'm trying to get the malwarebytes on, and I have a USB key inserted.

I clicked the above link, and right-clicked 'download now' to try to 'save as', but do not see it on the USB in the new file I made.

If you attempt to fix this yourself, keep in mind you're probably going to have to fix windows update, several snap-ins, your hosts file is probably locked out, and so forth.

sorry guys, I see the responses late

So, I am better off using the disc included with the computer and starting off fresh?

Yes. And you end up with a system that you KNOW is clean. Those Russian programmers are geniuses and there's no telling if you've succeeded or not.
