I have an adware/ransom ware problem with my computer...... 1. When I lite off my browser (Fire Fox), after a short time, I get a warning message saying "Warning, if you are seeing this message your computer may be infected with a virus ........ Call this 800 number ......". The warnings will allow me to exit out of them ..... but they return in a few minuets. 2. In my browsing I have many pop up ads, these ads appear that they are part of the web site I am visiting. They are not. These ads and the warning message above have a message in a light type in one of the corners saying "Ads by SaveLott". Here is a list of things I have done to solve the problem: 1. I purchased PCMatic, I made several scans and it did not remove the problem. 2. I went to uninstall program section in the control panel. I removed unknown programs after a date which I know to be good. 3. I have done a registry edit for "savelott" and deleted all occurrences of it. 4. I have found a directory in the C:\program files (86)\SaveLotts and deleted it. MY COMPUTER IS STILL IN TROUBLE!!!! Now my C:\program files (86) has disappeared. It is still there, I can access my programs there and I can go to the cmd line and do a dos dir /h command (to show the hidden files) and the file was present. There use to be an attribute command in dos to set the hide/unhide attribute, but this did not work. It has been a long time since I have navigated in dos and dos help in windows 7 is slim. What can I do? Bob EMail Address Removed - Nigel.
