Question by J: How do I get rid of the Whitesmoke translator virus?
I have a virus on my computer that opens every time I start it up asking me to run “whitesmoke.” I also have a program called whitesmoke translator that is on my desktop. I can delete it but the virus still remains on my computer. Does anyone know any information on this virus, and how to get rid of it? My norton wont detect it for some reason. Thank you!
