    MY SPYWARE GUARD 2008 STATES I HAVE PROCTION, BUT MY COMPUTER STATES I HAVE NO PROCUTION AND SYSTEM SECUIRTY STATES I HAVE VIARUS HELP ME TO UNDERSTAND?

  • Jon says:

    I had the same thing happen. I beeilve it said it was Windows Registry and it LOOKS like something Windows made to protect you from viruses but indeed it is a virus. It was awhile ago when I had it but I have both spyware protecting and virus protection. I just ran my spyware program (webroot) and it seemed to take care of it. If you have a spyware program then run it. If you do not own one I would get one anyhow..spyware can really mess up your comptuer. I would urge Webroot but there are a ton of spyware removers. Hope this helped!
