Re: I got another virus off of here

I got a virus this morning from DS at work, it was Antivirus Software Pro, and it looked like it was running antivirus software but it was a nasty virus that took IT at work 3 hours to fix the damn thing!

Shutting the power off my computer was the only way to make it go away without clicking on the box. I had the same exact thing a few months ago from here. Sad.

The only time anyone probably needs to wipe their hard drive and reinstall windows is if it's a rootkit.
oh no i think this is what i have....the only thing i was able to download was avast and it ran a full scan in boot mode and there were a couple of things coded as spyware and adware and then a couple of things with "rk" i wasn't sure what that meant, but i deleted them.....but when the computer restarted, the crap was still there so is the "rk" rootkit? and does that mean i need to do wipe out my hard drive? does anyone have a tut on how to do this myself or is that a stupid idea???

Re: I got another virus off of here

Well my WORK laptop is screwed! Sad to say I won't be back here which stinks since I'm just getting into cloth. Ugh, hope whoever is in charge gets this fixed. I heard through the grapevine this isn't the first time this has happened. If anyone is looking for me in any of my FS threads I guess let them know they can find me on TBW or in the PR - same username.

Thanks!

Re: I got another virus off of here

Hubby said if viruses keep coming off a certain site that Google & Firefox will block the site so hopefully whoever owns DS fixes this - it's my understanding this same thing happened last year.

Not good at all.

Re: I got another virus off of here

i had the antivirus pro download on mine & I have finally got it off. Now I keep getting Symantec Email Proxy popping up telling me my email message was unable to be sent. It was something the antivirus did, because I haven't been sending anything. Anyone know what to do about this?
