Yesterday I turned on my computer to work on my paper for class. It was not connected to the internet and had not been for days as I was at yoyo's apartment. Anyway, when I turned it on Windows started showing me this blue star-like icon warning me that I "might be a victim of software counterfeiting." When I started my computer today it started to analyze the "problem" and I asked it to do so later. When the computer started I clicked on it to Change Notification Settings, but when that page loads in IE it says I have reached it in error. It won't let me read my Validation Failure Details either.
What I'm trying to figut out is how this got on my computer and how to get it to go away. I'm on XP Professional that I got with my computer over two years ago... this is slightly annoying.
Side note: When reading Wikipedia I read:And I did run HijackThis recently... maybe that was it? Can anyone please offer some assistance?Originally Posted by Wikipedia
