Win 7 Antispyware 2012 is the name

I just got home and was browsing through webmasters world and i got this thing poping lol , its a web based trojan its kinda harmless but annoying as #*$!. I migth have picked it from some other place but if you have any tools to scan the forums do it just to be safe.

Not sure where that came from, Donna, so I hope you get it sorted.

You picked it up elsewhere...( it is a "scam trojan" ).it is designed to load at boot and show up randomly as you surf sites like this one, that have nothing whatsoever to do with it...and then nag you into paying for another piece of "scamware" to remove it.
