    Its like an anti virus thing but it does a bit more it like finds out whats damaging your computer. I thought I had cought a virus because norton told me of something that was of medium risk, when I asked it to repair this other thing called Alpha Antivirus poped up, so I assumed that's what I needed to get rid of the virus. Turns out this program blocks internet pages, and tells you there is trojans, worms, and viruses that arnt really there.
    It tells you theres like 50 different things that need to repair (not exagerating) and then wants you to pay for it. It also wont uninstall if you ask it. It practically completely debilitates your internet, I swear its like theres somebody on the other end! Just as Im about to type in a question on here it blocked it! So I exited out and googled it , the first thing I read was what I told you, and stopzilla would be able to get rid of it. I went in to the web site and as soon as I was about to click on it... it got blocked. At this point I was outraged I did want to pay a repair man like $100! So I went back into the internet and clicked the button before they could block me. It worked and my internet is running like normal, but I think I might do an anti virus search each day for the next week or so.

    So after I got it I wanted to know what I was getting into, they now want me to pay for their anti virus system, I don't think I will though.

    Any advice is appreciated. Also I might put up a warning abot tis thing because it is absolutely horrible! Sorry its soooo long!
