    its virus it doesn't let me access the net thro browsers but i could do skype calls or go open my game play online , that is just the start i kept trying to get the browsers to work but not, then it started giving an error messeg u cant alt tab or go any other place al-f4 or Ctr+alt+Del doesnt work, i did scan my pc with Kaspersky pro it came with my motherboard for free, and it didnt detect anything so i had to format the pc,( ofc i did try couple of restarts same the window pops up and u cant get away from it) lets say i might got it from a website when i did browse net after using he spoflux but i did format pc now no virus using avast again i did download all drivers etc.. and got spotflux then avast warned me to execute the program for potential virus etc i said yes, so the installation did get canceled and couldn't be done so i had to install it again and this time for avast i clicked no still avast did cancel the installation so 3rd time i did disable avast,same pop screen came


    now i did scan pc cant find **** and i didn't even download anything from any website i even got spot flux from here cnet, also to just triple check i went to my laptop i never connected my desktop to laptop or used usb to transfer files, just downloaded spot-flux from here directly to my laptop same **** happens.

    There is no virus in this product - I'm pretty sure the CNET editors would have discovered this during their in-depth review if this were true!
