PostSubject: VIRUS WARNING!!!   Thu Jun 09, 2011 10:26 am

Last night around 10:00, Malware Protection hacked into my computer and locked it up. They seem to be in desperate need of business. It did a 'scan' and showed 42 viruses, which were from Trojan, Worm and Child Porn sites. My computer is locked until I activate their software and buy the protection. PLEASE BEWARE OF MALWARE PROTECTION! I am on a different computer and will be at library later, so if anyone can help me get my computer back, I would appreciate it...Again, BEWARE MALWARE PROTECTION! they use the backdoor and help themselves to your computer.....

That "Malware Protection" is actually a malware itself, only pretending to be a protective service. Will your computer turn on in safe mode? If you can get online in safe mode, install:

THIS

It's gotten rid of that nasty thing for several friends of mine whose computers were attacked by it.

How do you stop them before it starts? Did you click on an ad or something?

I'm so glad that Safe Mode worked! I would highly recommend installing Malwarebytes, anyway, and running it on a regular basis. It's an amazing program for "killing" malwares, etc.

Yep. Absolutely free. Click the green "down arrow" near where it says "download now". That's the free one.

Yes. They're completely compatible. (I use AVG Free, too.) And Malwarebytes finds things that even AVG misses. AVG runs on a regular basis in my computer, and then I run Malwarbytes a couple of times a month - or when I've had a "scare" with a possible malware.

It should. I run both it and Spybot and Microsoft Security Essentials together on my laptop with no troubles.

Actually Rhonda I wouldn't recommend AVG; I had it for a while and it actually missed 2 or 3 viruses. Yikes

Interesting. AVG has worked extremely well for me. But I use it in conjunction with Malwarebytes, too.

They're sending a lot of viruses by mail. These people are really scaring. I don't know why they do it, but they keep sending those viruses ...And the worst of it, is that we cannot do almost anything about it... No

I'm happy things returned to normality, Rhonda. When we have a system crash, we feel miserable... Blue
