Beware of Gamevance!
« on: December 22, 2009, 02:28:28 pm »
I just lost my computer to a Gamevance virus. I don't even know how it got installed on my computer, because I don't play any games there, but recently I started getting all these popup ads that said Gamevance Ads on the bottom, even though I have Firefox set to block popups. I started having a problem with Firefox freezing up after almost every click, and then one day I noticed that Gamevance was installed. I went into the Add or Remove Programs and uninstalled it, but then it said in order for the uninstall to complete the computer needed to be restarted. When I restarted it, the computer would not restart. The first Dell screen comes up, but Windows won't load. So I guess it would be cheaper to buy another laptop than try to get this one fixed, as I don't have a disc for the computer (it was used when I got it), and it is 3 years old anyway. But I just wanted to warn everybody.
