I was on the internet, signed off, and started playing spider software and then a large window opened up claiming to be finding bad cookies, spyware, and viruses on my computer. There was even a woman's voice with probably an Asian accent telling me all kinds of dire things.
I disconnected my modem even though I was not on the internet, turned off my computer, and restarted it several times but the almost full screen window and crazy voice messages immediately start again.
The computer can be started in SAFE mode with C: prompt but starting in any other way brings up the false security window.
The window looks a tiny bit like a Microsoft window but there are overlapping words.
I was running Windows Vista and use Firefox as my browser. I switched to my Linux running portable to send this message.
Any suggestions what I am up against? Any suggestions on how to get it out of my Toshiba Laptop?
