Hello everyone, I noticed a thread for some desktop hijacker, than the help given was to go to the smartsystem website and Dl the cure. Well this is the about:like virus, and that web sight just makes to worse. The sympotoms is a lost of control of desktop with a spyware add in the center. I cannot clear it, and could use any help to regain my computer control. Thank you.
