Hi Every time I open a private message , or someone sends me a private message in Yahoo messenger, a blank web page and two "your system has virus detected" pop ups appear. I have deleted yahoo and loaded from scratch to no avail

Can anyone help!

Thanks :freak:

You have an ad-trojan. Download spybot and/or ad-aware. Be sure to get the updated definitions files (check for updates). Clean your pc...

Whatever you do, don't fall for the "your pc has a virus detected" crap. It may have a virus and certainy does have an ad-trojan, but the stuff being pushed is scumware. It'll crap up you PC with more ad-trojans in "exchange" for scanning your PC for viruses (which it probably doesn't do). Stick to reputable virus scanners (mcafee and norton are two).
