    I am sure that this Error # 0x80072ee7 pop-up on my computer is not from Windows. The web address indicates that the warning is nothing but a malicious page designed to look like an official warning of Microsoft. This Error # 0x80072ee7 pop-up is very intrusive, even if I hit the back button on my browser; this pop-up retains the same page. I already did a scan using my own anti-virus program but to no avail. Homepage settings and other configuration of my browser is correct and seems not changed by this Error # 0x80072ee7 page. No trace of modification on the browser, but why it keeps on showing this scam page during the launch? The message states the following:

    Microsoft Warning Alert

    If you close this page, your computer access will be disabled to prevent further damage to our network. Your computer has alerted us that it has been infected with spyware and riskware…

    Any one knows how to remove this “Error # 0x80072ee7 pop-up” virus from the computer?
