Serious malware problems
I don't know how this happened, but a couple of weeks ago without changing anything, my computer started redirecting me on the first click of any link outside my email. It will put up an ad and when I close it, only then can I go where I want to go.
I went through my programs and anything that was added in November, I removed, even software updates but that didn't help.
Another thing it INSISTS that I need to upgrade my *system* player.
The site is jsn.donecore.net/sd/cpops.........
That one tells me:
The media content is not shown properly. It is recommended to update your system player now and gives me the choice of M.Player 9.2 or M.Player 8.3.
I am very leery of downloading anything I am not sure about so maybe I need to do this, but this is not the usual way I am notified that I need to update anything.
Can anyone tell me what is going on with this computer?
(I just clicked on this email to correct something I wrote and this came up:
The other day I was reading a craft blog and it started in with very narrow vertical flashing ads for JoAnn's fabrics. Next thing I knew it had turned into porn...and I do mean very graphic video porn. I could not turn it off so had to close the page down. What if my grandkids were to see that stuff.
Any help would be appreciated very much.
