IE Defender HELP RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    When navigating in the windows environment (the problem is not presenting in other programs), clicks on links or any other page movement generates an enduring error message that is masked like Windows software.  The message says:  you computer has been infected by some unknown Trojan horse.  It’s dangerous for your system. Critical Files may be lost.  Click OK to download the antispiware program (IE Defender).  When you click on the ok, your page is re-directed to the IE defender site and your system is supposedly scanned.  The scan shows several “virus” that you have.  They are: (with the Microsoft Red X shield)  Trojan.BetaDivX.Clicker; Trojan.BetaDivX.Temp; Trojan.BetaDivX.Backdoor.  When you click on remove on that screen, you are directed to pay for antispyware, which I have (Symantec, the blockers on IE, the blockers on the customized toolbar, Windows Defender (all of which indicated that the Trojan , et al. didn’t exists.  What is going on?  Step by Step Instructions would be greatly appreciated.  (I’m using XP on my HP and this problem is getting on my GD nerves.)  Thanks in advance.
