    sad Is my pc infected

    Hey Everyone,

    I'm running Windows 7 on my system. Whenever i try to search for anything on Google, i get the following message that the site may not be safe and it contains malware that could harm your pc. I had disabled UAC from last few days. Can any one tell me that is my pc infected from malware? Does any one have any idea about it? Kindly suggest me your views regarding to this issue.

    Thanks a lot.

    Providing you have a squared anti malware installed & updated to latest definitions, restart your PC and keep all programs closed. Launch a squared only. Then open Task Manager find Explorer.exe under the Processes tab and click End Process. Yes, you should terminate Explorer.exe the desktop will disappear. That's normal. Now you have only a squared visible (and Task Manager itself, you may close it by now). Run the a-squared scanner. FULL system scan. It will take some time to finish. Be patient.When finished, press ALT+CTRL+DEL to launch the controls, press Shutdown and select Restart. When restarted, your PC should be back to normal. If desktop is still showing scary image, change it manually. That image is harmelss because it's a graphics file and a squared considers it non-malicious.
