Zeus Popup-- help
We suddenly got a pop-up:
Windows detected Zeus virus, the infections detected, indicate some recent downloads on the computer which in turn has created problems on ...
etc. (it ends by asking us to call some phone # -=-FORGET THAT!)
We shut down the computer and then rebooted.
So far, no repeat.
I will run my AV program (NIS) and then Malwarebytes.
When I tried to research it, I keep getting sites that start out ok, but they eventually say to d/l SpyHunter.
This seems like a disguised ad for that program.
Any suggestions on how I can manually get rid of this (if it is even a problem)?
