Is this a threat?

Recommended Posts

Is this a threat? It tried to download on my computer a couple of weeks ago after I checked "Cancel". It tried to download on my husbands computer today after hitting "cancel". Is there a way to check if it on my systems? Below is an entry on a web forum not dedicated to computers. Since I have Superantispyware installed, I wondered if someone here knows.Thanks

Have you scanned with SAS? if so what does the program find? Are you using the Pro or the free version, if the pro, is real time turned on? Be sure to update your definitions before scanning and I assume you have updated to version 4.0.1154? :)

SUPERAntiSpyware should remove that Rogue product - if it does not, let us know and we will have you run a custom diagnostic and we will update our definitions to remove the variant you may have.

I ran the free program and I think it got it. Thanks for your help. I'll post the Superantispyware site for others.
