I have a pop-up blocker, and it can be diabled for a moment in order for me to click on legitimate links. While doing so, I was hit by an almost endless stream of pop-ups warning me about spyware. (Window after window after window…) Once under control, it seemed any window I opened then after would trigger a similar response. (Have you experienced this, too?)
I suspected some executable file got installed on my PC. I then used MacAfee Virus scan to locate/identify any rogue files. It did find ossproxy.exe as a suspicious file, but it cannot be deleted! Is anyone aware what this is? Is this the culprit? And, can it be disabled, if not deleted? I did “quarantine” with Macafee, but I am unsure what this does, exactly!
(If it helps, the path for the suspicious file was C:\WINNT\System32\ossproxy.exe)
Any info you can provide would be of great help.
