It resized my browser window without permission. Malware.

Stay away from it big time, infact I'd recommend an admin remove the link because it can be a pain to remove

Try searching it in a search engine, you'll quickly find the nature of it.

Thank you guys. :) and is there a chance I have it because it popped up? It came up as an 'error' when i was on anywho.com, so i was instantly suspicious. That, and seeing 'Pro' and 'Free' in the same sentence... Usually, *if* its a valid program for free, they'll give you the program and then pressure you every time you use it to 'upgrade to Pro' for a price.

Do you have a little exclamation mark in your toolbar or something similar saying something like Warning: Your computer may be infected with unwanted software, and/or have random popups / error messages advertising the product. If you do then you probably have it

I don't have any of the symptoms, but decided to run a StopSign check anyway :) Thanks again for the help :)

Try AVG if you're looking for a decent free anti-virus program.

NOD32 is very reliable.

Win Anti Virus Pro sounds like spyware to me... (it's nasty)
