Grrrr.... two hours it took me to get rid of it whilst messing around in safe mode, and to think that I got up at 6am to have a productive start to the morning!
Who makes these things? I bet plenty of suckers pay the money that they ask for, it was one of those Warning! ones which hacks your desktop background and then doesn't allow you to open any of your anti-virus or anti-malware programs.
Serves me right for not running the weekly update of my anti-virus, and for using torrent sites, thank you online virus removal programs for existing though (more specifically, thank you ESET for working after Malwarebytes, AVG, McAfee, and Windows Live OneCare all failed miserably).
I Google the virus, then do what the site says to do to get rid of it
Yep, its pretty frustrating, I have gotten trojan viurs couple times, I am not computer genius but it took me several hours well to get rid of it myself. You definitely have to go to the source, meaning check the path which it is located or you can do a system restore.
I despise trojans! In the past, I have gotten them. The only surefire way to get rid of them is to reset computer to factory settings. However, if your someone who has a lot of programs, and etc..Then its not a good idea.
I paid about over 100 dollars to get my laptop fixed a couples years ago. Then I found out that my computer could reset my laptop to factory settings. Boy, I wish 'best buy" would of told me that.
Set yourself up with a virtual box for running and testing out any software with any dubious origins.
Make an image file of your system when its nice and fresh and you have all your time intensive programs and updates installed.
Fixing any possible virus issues becomes a click and walk away for a coffee process.
Thats hectic. It could have been worse though.
You always have such streamlined ways of working.
Are you not a robot by any chance.

Somebody should be more careful about the ads automatically placed on peoples hubs beneath the author's picture. I think accidently clicked one and McAfee stopped a Trojan from entering my computer. I wish I could...

Try AVG Antivirus 9. It is the best one I have used ever.

For the past 5 or 6 hours I have been dealing with some fraud and identity theft that I discovered and I'm now really weary of my online security; I hope some HP "techies" can help... I use the Windows 7...
