Recently, I have been bombarded by various viruses/malware/adware on my Windows Vista. Which is effecting my Internet Explorer 8 browser, causing it to behave abnormally. But I will focus on this issue.
When browsing I receive a message window stating that WhereSphere is no longer working. I have since learned that this is Malware. Why hasn't my virus protection blocked or removed/detected this.
I have been using the google toolbar as an add-on. Two weeks ago I noticed it was no longer available as a toolbar on my homepage, so I re-installed it. Then my Internet Explorer began behaving abnormally. I have been advised to Scan using PrevX. Which has detected an infection. Naming google toolbar Notifier file 5.5.4723.1820, and Rootkit google adapter.
I have tried to uninstall/delete file 5.5.4723.1820, but computer is not recognizing my permission.
