    Been having a few problems with my computer lately. I leave it on at nights and sometimes it Windows will do an update and restart it. A few nights ago it did this and when I woke up there was some program called Perfect Defender on my computer. It keeps popping up every 15 minutes or so saying I have spyware. The window says "Security Center Alert." My internet has also really slowed down when browsing the web. I have tried using different web browsers. Xbox live works just fine. I tried to renew my subscription to Norton Anti-Virus but it gets all the way to where I click the download the new software button but always says that Firefox can't connect to that page. Google searches always lead to different links than the ones I click on. Spybot Search/Destroy won't open anymore. AVG Free edition isn't finding anything on a virus scan. Websites that are already in my favorites load, but really slow. Security websites like Norton won't load past a certain point. I am getting very frustrated, any help is appreciated.

    It is definitely this Perfect Defender program. I am just having trouble getting rid of it completely.

    A quick google search turned up tons of results on removing it too.

    Think I've got it fixed now. The problem was it made google useless. Anytime I searched about it the links I clicked would send me to other websites, not the ones I clicked on about how to get rid of Perfect Defender.
