    Default So Called "Security Alert"

    I have Microsoft Security Essentials on my Windows 7 computer and I get this “Windows Security Alert” from Cleanerworrysaferyin saying it detected Trojans and ready to remove them. They want to put up a setup.zip. I was watching Netflix and my computer stop dead in its tracks and this warning came on which it has done several times and I run a scan and everything is clean. I think this is some kind of advertisement which just stops my computer in its tracks? Also last night I get a call from Skype saying my computer is at risk. All this crap is invading my privacy and I have “Microsoft Security Essentials” but I don’t think it’s enough so can anyone give me some advice on how to stop all this crap. Thanks.

    Run super anti spyware as well as possibly malware bytes. And if its still a problem change your Av from MSE to Nod32

    The actual alert sound like a virus to me. I'd say download avast and use that, along with malwarebytes, threatfire, and possibly antispyware as Gary said.

    Get the Eset Rogue App Remover . Make sure you get the right install x86 or x64. I think this is what this removes. The PC it's checking I think needs to be online too
