www.asafteyprocudure.com doesn't work for me. Please check the site address.
Tell us more about Norton's and this computer. What Norton product do you have, eg is it just Norton's Anti-virus or is it Norton's Security which includes a firewall and anti-virus? Is it a trial that came pre-installed with the computer or did you purchase it? Are its virus definitions kept up to date?
What do you use for anti-spyware? Remember, viruses and spyware are not the same.
That icthis.exe looks like a trojan or virus, eg Trojan.Media-Codec/V4. If it is found in C:\Program files\Online video Add-on\icthis.exe then it probably is.
What I would do;
1] Turn off System Restore where viruses and spyware can hide, then
2] Goto http://housecall.trendmicro.com and run an online anti-virus scan. Delete everything the scan finds, and
3] Goto http://www.ewido.net and run the online anti-spyware scan. Again, delete everything the scan finds.
How to turn off System Restore: Right click your My Computer icon and select Properties. Click the System Restore tab and select the option to disable System Restore.
Remember to turn System Restore back on after the scans, but only if your computer is clean.
I suspect the browser issue of redirecting to that web site is also associated with this.
Hi, I have XP.
When I work on my new website project I close windows (pages) and
they go to www.asafteyprocudure.com. If I'm offline it just tries to connect. I don't want their stuff! How do I get rid of it?
Also a shield icon (blue with ?mark changes to red with a X) in my tray. Can't right click on it. It puts up balloons that say I have been infected... click this balloon to resolve this issue...
I click the x to close but they pop right back up, now every few seconds. Very annoying! It goes to the same site. Sometimes very large ads pop up for it.
I had a yellow icon, a triangle with a ! on it. A alert window said (as windows closing) icthis.exe cannot initialize... I searched for it. Found it (with the icon) in program files. Could not delete it but I changed the name. HA! I dont see it and it's balloons anymore.
Now I need to dump the shield and pages going to their site.
My Norton pays no attention to it!
Thanks for any help!!
