Internet Speed Monitor advertising

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by maskedraiderfan, Sep 14, 2007.

  1. I keep getting these advertising sites coming up from Internet Speed Monitor
    and they won't go away. I've checked my adware, spyware etc. but, this does
    seem to be having an effect on my computer and my antivirus doesn't show
    anything. But, one night I couldn't open any of my email addresses. I've
    especially had trouble opening my yahoo emails.
    Does anyone know what is happening and how I can stop this?

    Do a thorough check for malware, following all of the steps at one of these
    Web pages.

    So How Did I Get Infected Anyway?
    For quite a few people it's by installing Messenger Plus, whose ads for
    malware don't identify the malware as such and try to convince you that you
    owe it to the author. See also:

    Don't ever do a "default" install of anything. Always choose Custom and see
    what else is being carried along. Don't install any extras you're not sure
    of.
