Question by Jdonger: HELP! My computer has the “open with” virus! How do I get rid of it?
I don’t know where this came from, but for some reason, anytime I try to open internet explorer, limewire, or any other file, a window pops up called “open with” with a list of “recomended programs” to start the program with or something.
I’ve read that malewarebytes is good for getting rid of it, but whenever I try to download it, the “open with” box pops up and I can’t use it. What should I do?
