    This is quite simply a virus that tries to take your money. It will tell you whatever it needs to (Included in the above picture is a “virus” named child porn proxy server. This actually caused a hell of a lot of commotion to my less than tech savvy friends when they saw “child porn”.

    Keep in mind – This program is a virus and you need to get a virus removal program to get rid of it. There are many out there but the one I personally use for spyware and malware is spybot search and destroy. Its completely free and can be found by googling it. Use what you will, just dont use this virus program that will most likely wipe out your bank account.
