Internet Explorer detected a threat "fake antivirus " coming into pc , thanks to it and Norton 360 got blocked . Now im writing these in another browser , because in IE , it got deleted when i clicked submitted . Is someone trying to access my pc or what , im a bit worried , chrome seems fine . Please help .


Will update u if something else is not right . By the way have run malwarebytes - no threats detected .

Did you do a full scan with malwarebytes?? Its probably in add/remove programs or whatever youre using. Look there for any fake programs

Did malwarebytes scan , no threat detected . Its hard to find out any fake programs only program I installed was NetWorx which measures data I use interms of internet so how many gb a month 30 ,40 ,50 . Any other recommendations

You can try Hitman Pro http://www.surfright.nl/en/hitmanpro as well as Rogue Killerhttp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/roguekiller/

Was there any actual name of this Fake Antivirus ( theres so many of them)?

PS: Networx is fine as long as it was downloaded from the legit site.

Have a look in Norton 360 and see if it's recorded your event, or put the item in its quarantine area.

Tried to access it , now i got norton 360 premier edition , in which it says it has blocked , no action required . So yeah i could not go into my recorded event, or put the item in its quarantine area.

If you know how to access it , just let me know in comments thanks.

I would look in task manager see if there's any strange names running. Reset IE, see if it still happens. Disable system restore, then do another full scan with malwarebytes

Make sure Chrome is up to date too. It and other browsers were pwned last week at the pwn2own contest.
