Just today Im my Netzero HOME page is being hijacked and my home page is getting reset to "blank:data" and I see various popups including:
http://vv1.s13.tempx.cc - Windows PC speed test
... spyware detected
would you like to stop all spyware activity in a few minutes.
http://vv1.s13.tempx.cc - Your system is infected - Microsoft Internet Explorer
!!! HAZARD DETECTED !!!
window contains "VIRUS LIST" with KLF highlighted
http://vv1.s13.tempx.cc - Welcome to the System Performance Wizard
OS Check: ... OK
Browsers Check: ... OK
Syware Check: ... WARNING
If you hit any of the "OK" buttons you are taken to "blank:data" webpage with "google-like" search results for Spyware software.
I regularly use SpyBot Search & Destroy, AdAware as well as Panda Antivirus which I just ran for the 3rd time in 24 hours. Each tool found objects to be removed and yet I still get these "possibly legal but" very annoying popups.
Can I get these turned off.
