Having problems with your Acer PC Desktops ?

I have an Acer Aspire SA8-2970 PC with a virus.

\015 I have an Acer Aspire SA8-2970 PC which has , what I can only think has a virus on it. A box appears each time I log on saying Security Tool and it will not let me do anything at all but says someone is trying to get my card details then asks me to buy this security tool to get rid of the virus. but every time I click of it it comes back straight away. I cant even go on the system restore on it as it is blocking everything. is there anyway i can download a recovery disc as the origional has been mislaid. Thanks Kate\015

Answers :

\015\012It may well be some form of virus or spyware.

It may also be that you have too many applications running at once eg. lots of toolbars and instant message typ programs.

It can also happen on graphic intensive applications.

You should rule out nasty stuff first.

Hi Kate,

It seems that the computer is effected with some Spyware or Malware

Try to Start your System in Safe mode by pressing F8 while booting
Log in as an Administrator
Click Start > Run and type msconfig
Go to Startup Tab
Click on Disable all
Go to Services Tab, Check "Hide all Microsoft services"
Click Disable all
Apply, OK
Restart the computer in normal mode

Hope this helps you to get rid of the message, If you happen to get rid of the message I would suggest you to Scan your computer by Installing a strong Anti virus and Anti spyware and keep it clean from such malware and spyware attacks
