I think my computer has been attacked by “Lpmxp2067.com” malware. When I was browsing online, it always redirected me to this page asking me to download flash player. I thought it was fake and didn’t do it. But this thing makes me crazy. It pops up every time I open Chrome and also there is a message at the bottom of the browser window that appears for about 10 seconds & then disappears, saying something about lower your interest rate, car insurance, etc,. I have spent 3 hours scanning my computer, but it didn’t find anything. I don’t know what to do now. Please help me to get rid of them!!!
