It takes over your entire computer
Tuesday, March 1, 2011 by jazzymjr | Discussion: Personal Computing
Just wanted to alert everyone about a very nasty piece of malware out there!
My companion was the recipient of this "nice" piece of software. He is running Windows 7, 32 bit. He has no idea how he got it. Anyway, it takes over your whole computer, and you cannot even open any executable on your computer. It tells you that your computer is infected...it even takes over your desktop. It disables eveything. You cannot even get into safe mode to try to run a anti-malware program to try to get rid of it. It even blocks all your system restore backups! What a piece of work! I am hoping that I can get to his documents folder and copy that...I can't remember if I put that on a different partition or not...I sure hope I did! I am going to have to wipe and re-install everything for him.
