Web Technologies Informative - Computer Infections
PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND -- While giving permission to download Active-X controls to my computer, I was kicked off the web.
When I logged back on, nothing I clicked or typed into my address would work. It kept telling me I had Trojans, Spyware, Malware and Adware in my
computer but for $35.00 I could go to their site and download software to rid my computer of these new infections. I went into Windows explorer to find these new files and tryed to delete them. Web Technologies was the offender and set up the viruses so they could not be deleted. Everything on my computer was frozen, even Solitaire. After spending hours trying to get to the Symantec website for help, I finally got through and for $100.00 they were able to remote delete the everything Web Technologies had dumped into my computer.
BTW: There are 2 website Web Tech uses: warningurls dot com and wav2008 dot com.
Does this company really think that ANYONE would want to do business with a company that loaded infections into their computer and then want blackmail money? If consumers know who the culprit is, why can't something be done to stop these people. I have nothing against Symantec for charging me; as far as I'm concerned, it was worth every penny to get my computer back and functioning normally, but why is someone allowed to infect a computer and why are they allowed to profit from it? On the Anti-Virus 2008 website, you are allowed to contact them. I did and told them exactly what I thought of the way they do business. To no surprise, a reply has not been forthcoming
