popup malware set2updatenow.checkupdatenow.com

Morning all,

set2updatenow.checkupdatenow.com

This particular popup keeps popping up irrespective of what I do to try and get rid of it. It either tells me java or some flash player needs updating and seems to appear when the computer is left idle for some time.

I am running Windows 7 and use F-secure (as marketed by Orange) with online updates. Running a computer scan reveals nothing at all.

Two questions really how did it get past F-secure in the first place and having done that manage to elude subsequent scans?

And of course has anyone any idea how to get rid of it please?

Thanks in advance,

Ytongs
