are you talking about the counterfeited software 1?
I got it to but when I searched for the Microsoft virus protection software on my computer it was not there . I mean the whole program. And my McAfee said everything was fine. That Microsoft Protection doesn't exist on my computer, but I was getting the warning from it.
Wen you hit "Clean Computer" did anything Happen. Nothing did for me????

Virus fo sho!!! SI was my home page and when I fired up Internet Explorer the other day, I got it. I have a PC and my Norton anti-virus wasn't fully functional at this moment. Like the only moment ever, go figure. I didn't notice prior to opening IE, so that's where I blew it. I'm about 16 hours in over the coarse of 3 days, battling this virus. Everything stops responding or responds very slowly, particularly on IE. I was sad to find during today's battle that this virus is raping my computer while I'm not even using it. I'm at the point where I'm going to back up everything up before I loose it. This sucks big time, a new computer isn't exactly in the budget right now.
I took these with my phone:

I have been getting the same virus from Microsoft virus protection. it looks and acts like virus scan software and it asks you to upgrade your virus system by buying their software. It locked up my laptop to the point I had to have dell log in remotely and scan my computer. They found the virus and it was coming from the axis control need to view the cameras. It happened twice. Every time I clicked on the download axis control.

I definitely didn't download or install, I just closed IE because it was suspect.
I knew Swell Info didn't generate it btw. I figured someone is using SI as a bridge. SI was my home page so I knew it was from here somehow.
Anyhow my PC is jammed up pretty good. Hopefully I can save her

I've have contracted a computer forensic security consultant to take a look.
He says this is NOT coming from the swellinfo server, and its highly unlikely it is coming from any ads.
He says its more likely it could be something the user clicked on from another site that pops up whenever they open the browser. This would explain the issue, of correlating it to Swellinfo, if Swellinfo is your home page.
Anyone that sees those alerts should never run anything they say (the sites are flat out lying about being infected). If they did run something in the past, they need a full system clean - not involving the antivirus they have installed already. Again, the malware prevents the AV from working properly.

Another site? Out. It was somehow my/our fault but you fixed the site anyway? Hmmmmm.
Way to pass the buck and not give a sh!t about my computer getting jammed up by a virus contracted through your website.
Oh, and your welcome.
Ps It was cute how I magically got logged out 3 times while posting this. Even better was how auto-save was chopping out half of the paragraph and certain sentences in the middle opposed to the usual last sentence or two.
