Specs: Windows Vista, 3 GIG
a program called "Vista Total Security 2011" keeps popping up and will not let me go any further other, than buy this program. I didn't download this program and haven't a clue as to where it came from. Now, a pop up from the "Vista Total Security 2011" says that I have IRC.worm.DOS.Loa. How do I get rid of these.

Edit out your email address if you don't want to be spammed to death.

Download, update and run MalwareBytes freebie. It is particularly good at fixing those bogus AV things.

Once you've sorted out your computer just shut it down if one of those things pops up. If you cancel their Window with the corner X it is like saying Yes. Never touch those Windows, anywhere.

Please come back and let us know the outcome.

You obviously didn't read the whole post. In particular read the first line of my response #1. You should not put your email address in open text on the internet.

You have been scammed and there is not much you can do about it. These people are nothing whatever to do with VIsta.

The important thing is to learn to browse safely and to reboot your computer when you get anything like that popping up again. They are usually very obvious because they say there are many viruses (to frighten you) which is unlikely in real life.

If you still have problems with the computer and have taken the steps already given in this thread then please raise a new post of your own.

Please do not post then vanish - let us know the outcome

Also, i would recommend that you get that card cancelled, and notify the bank that you have been a victim of cc fraud, they have ways of dealing with this sort of thing. as Derek mentioned.

NEVER give out personal information to something like this.

IF you have to use a credit card make sure you know where it is being used( I recommend never using a cc online unless you have to.
also your email, phone, address, drivers licence,social security number etc. never give it out. your bank will never ask for this stuff,
