My brother downloaded AlertSpy, which will scan for spyware but requires you to pay to delete them.
I have uninstalled it but I am still receiving messages that pop up on my desk top warning me of various security alerts (spyware, trojans, suspicious traffic etc). The messages direct me to one of alertspy's many websites where I'm once again prompted to pay.
For an inexperienced user these messages would be quite frightening and it's disgusting that the Alertspy should use these intimidatory tactics to get sales.
Anyway, please tell me how I can stop these messages from appearing.
Task Manager tells me that the file crss.exe (or something similar) is running but this is a system file and not a virus copy (although I've learned that some viruses can hijack this file and use it to send messages).
