Hi guys!

Everytime I log on to my Sony Laptop, I get a message box 'Search Settings 1.2', I have no idea what it wants me to do?

Any ideas?

It's a virus. Scan your system with a good up-to-date anti-virus and a good anti-spyware package.

Suggestions - online scan with eset NOD32

Anti-spyware- Spybot S&D v1.6.2 and Malwarebytes

As above first and if still no joy;

Run the MS Windows Installer CleanUp Utility and remove if listed.

You may have to boot into safemode to have effect,also above scans with Spybot sd and Mbam are best updated if possible and run in safemode.

Thanks skidzy!

I'm also trying to tidy my machine up, I've just been in to my installed programs & there are 90 programs. Some look like updates, but how do i know if they is safe to remove?
