These people need a baseball bat make over :twisted:

If they catch just 10 people out,then its been worth while knocking up a virus and web page :cry:

If I go on any "dubious" sites I always delete my browsing history and delete cookies.

I didn't realise until recent that Facebook use cookies to log everything you click on "AFTER" you have logged off your Facebook account :shock:

Plus cookies take up space too,so do your self a favour and empty the cookie Jar today :wink:

I had that happen a year or more ago.
No idea what site I got it from as I hadn't been looking at "dodgy" sites when it appeared, well at least not that day. :oops: :wink:
It also managed to get past Microsoft Security Essentials.

I got rid of it, I think, by using System Restore which puts your computer back to how it was at an earlier date. You'll lose all the changes/updates that have been done to your computer after the date/time selected.
System Restore is in System Tools if I remember correctly.

Funnily enough it's not after the 100 quid , that's an added bonus. When you pay through their links it gets your bank details and cleans your bank account out ... Look up ukash hoax

They mention child pornography knowing it's the most vile and embarrassing thing hoping to get you to pay up even though most will have never visited such a thing

They set up catch sites which get your ip and from that they can get the details you were shown ... You can do it yourself with what us my ip address finder

Something like malawarebytes or spybot search and destroy should take it out

As to removing cookies/cache and temporary Internet folders then cc cleaner seems to work well
