In a sorts anyway.

DO NOT CLICK THE LINKS I HAVE SHOWN!

I do have the option turned on yet I obviously (and not knowingly) visited a site that is now kind of taking over my IE home page & opening another tab to different sites, mainly to this one though: hxxp://www.maniatv.com/?SPC-002&attr=003

And this one: hxxp://www.bonus.com/bonus/nav/scooter/ ... onus%2Ecom

When I close that tab, all of my IE tabs close.

I'm curious as to why SASW didn't alert me & stop this action.

I'm also getting popups for something called winantiviruspro: hxxp://winantivirus.com/download/2007/? ... 75828503c2.

Has anyone alse been dealing with or seen this?

Quick update, I tried to use AVG, but alas', AVG is only Vista compatable IF you buy it, which is a rip for us Vista users. :(

About the virus, it was vundo.

SuperAntispyware did updates to its program via a support ticket & PCTools Spyware Dr. was already updated, but it wasn't enough.

It took searching a few other forums & getting a couple of vundo removal tools.

It appears it is gone as I'm no longer getting popups & my HDD light is no longer constantly flashing like a K-Mart Blue light special! (My HP notebook uses all blue indicators hence my reference!)
