PostSubject: Weird shit going on with my laptop   Thu Aug 02, 2012 5:53 am

So I somehow got a virus on my pc and I 'think' I got rid of it but I'm not sure.

Anyways I'll be trying things 1 at a time to see if it's gone so I won't be doing a lot of things for a while.


The virus was basicly something that covered my entire screen saying it was from the cyber police (LOL) and that I had to pay €100 because of some illegal business.
At that time I was looking at a Saints Row 3 vid on youtube so yeah, pretty believeable...

I was able to launch my pc in safe mode, perform a command line virus scan and deleted some suspicious files I didn't remember being there before and so far it seems to have done the trick.

If any of you know what the hell this thing is and can offer some assistance to make sure it's gone, I would appreciate it.

I've gotten something extremely similar, a virus that said it was a windows program that said i had a virus and that i needed to pay money for a different program to get rid of the virus.

Seems like randomly deleting those 3 files solved it for me, lol.

Read some fixes online that made people download a new Explorer.exe so it's kinda weird that me not having touched that file solved it...
Whatever I'll take my fix :p

The only permanent damage is my Firefox theme that seems to be gone Crying or Very sad

With the weird things Firefow has been having lately (like me being unable to set a homepage wat?) even after reinstalling it, I might actually switch.
