  • micwig says:

    Security central has taken over my computer. When I try to run spyhunter or any other help program or try to delete the security central files, the program runs about 2 seconda and then shuts down. Security central shows a note whick states that the file could not open because "W2/Blaster.worm" has prevented it from starting. And says that I need to block it with securilty central software. What can I do?
