    Somehow, my PC let to install a Demo version of a program called AntiVermins. It pretends to be an anti-spyware proggy, but in fact it is a scum advertisement that forces you to buy a full AntiVermins version. It installs itself onto your PC (without your permission) via Trojan or website. As far as I know, it does nothing more then that a bubble pops out every five minutes from the Start Panel and tries you to convince to buy that crap.

    So watch out - I don't know how it came to my PC... Probably my dad or small bro did that...

    Now, I found this website with a "AntiVermins Removal" - AntiVermins: Detect Remove AntiVermins - but I am still doubtful before letting this unknown program into my rig, especially after reading this paragraph:
    Anyone has any good idea how to help me, please?

    I would do a search for it on the internet and remove it whichever way they tell you to. That is the best thing to do probably.

    As for how you got it...

    Come on now Pisis you can admit to surfing for internet porn when you accidently downloaded it....:lol:

    Der Adler is right propably it came from the kind of websites. :lol:
    Firstly you can use Regcleaner application tu see system registry,especially the autostart section.
    secondly try to use Ad-Aware SE Personal which is available on http://www.komputerswiat.pl/download/go.asp?id=5229&a=1
    Then scan your comp and remove all suspected files according to the suggestion of the application.

    Pisis get AVG anti virus it will detect and tell you just whom the culprit is from and is .........

    by the way it has been proven over the last 5 years you can get an array of virus activity from emails attachments of course as well as just pure pop ups.

    Even un-noticed and unaware from friends

    stay away from porn man ...........
