    I recently downloaded Internet Explorer 8 after upgrading my system from Windows Vista to Windows 7. I usually work in Internet Explorer.

I am using McAfee anti virus. Provide some valuable removal methods for Win32/GameVance.

    This is a malicious code sent by a gaming website having the URL as gamevance.com. It sends this malicious to hijack user information from the user's machine.

    Boot Computer in Safe Mode

    It does not seems to be nay infection of Internet Explorer as I am also using the Internet Explorer 8 web browser. Still you may uninstall the Internet Explorer 8 and then connect to the internet with some other web browsers. If the issue is solved it can be that the Internet Explorer had an infection and was not downloaded from a trusted site. If the issue is not resolved use the Safe Mode to scan your computer and remove the virus from your computer.

    Setup Windows Firewall

    It is basically an unwanted software which is installed to hack data from the infected host. My Dell Desktop also had this software downloaded unknowingly. It is a free online gaming website which generates this Win32/GameVance adware. Microsoft also has granted a Moderate Level alert as it can be easily removed sing the uninstaller component. The best prevention method is to setup the Windows Firewall to verify the traffic going out and coming in to the host computer.
