mimar sinan
« on: November 27, 2011, 01:35:05 AM »
Can someone tell me if mimar sinan is a virus? I had let a representative from iyogi remote access my computer when I was trying to purchase avast internet security for my computer. I have been running the free trial when I decided to buy the product so I called the phone number to get some help purchasing and installing.

Anyway the woman from iyogi told me I had this mimar sinan on my computer and it was a virus which needed removed before I should get the avast. Then she said it would cost me $169. to do this. I said no and told her I would call back if I needed their help.

So is this mimar sinan is a virus? Should I be worried? Why wasn't avast finding it if it is and is on here? Any suggestions or info on mimar sinan?

Thank you Donz63, I have been stressing about this. I first started this topic here http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=89152.0 and then decided from replies that maybe I was supposed to talk about the mimar sinan in viruses and worms. If you see my other link you can see how bad I have been stressing. Breathing a bit easier now, thank you. Others from that thread told me I need to run an anti malware program to see wwhat is up. Think I better find one and do that.
