    THIS idiotic thing sometimes appears when im connected to the internet.
    Sometimes it makes the computer freeze, when the thing is loading.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    First, is this even real? Because it says viruses are taking over my computer,
    but it seems like nothing is happening. It keeps on popping up... FRIGGN' ANNOYING.

    I heard AVG is a REALLY GOOD virus scanner. But I can't even download it because
    the website is not working. I think it's because of the virus..?

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Google links redirecting... Now i have to re-enter the site link i clicked (highlight then press enter).
    Not big of a deal, but annoying.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!


    BTW, I don't have a genuine windows vista thing.. My friend's uncle downloaded something to this to save it from some
    blue screen that says something about boot... something... w/e..

    EDIT: Please do not post direct links to virus scanner downloads. Please post only mirrors!
    The same problem with the AVG is happening to the sites!

    OK...

    So from reading this you have been surfing the internet with no anti-virus software already installed?

    I think the thread title is wrong - shouldn't be stupid virus...

    There is an online scanning utility that you might be able to use: http://housecall.trendmicro.com/uk/

    Not used myself but it's an option.

    Other than that, reformat and then next time actually be prepared to go online before you do.

    Try super anti spyware. If it doesn't work PM me and I'll upload the portable one onto Mediafire.

    Also this is NOT a virus, it is a fake security scanner. Try to uninstall it, I'm guessing the computer shutdown thing is scammers using you to scam people.

    I uploaded it, I have used SuperAntiSpyware and it is safe and has good detection. Detected so much that :shudder: Norton couldn't detect.
    It also doesn't need to be installed to scan.

    From what I can guess is that it is a peice of malicous software which requires you to enter text from an image, I expect that the image is from a legit site and they are using you to fill in forms. Anyway, go along with it now, remove the fake security center and then use malware antibytes.

    Also, just curious, but can you see this

    it is a mirror of malware antibytes (also makes a good proxy for blocked sites!).

    Try addign .nyud.net to the end of the URL and see if you can access a blocked scanner.

    True true..

    And that link you gave me? Yep, same problem as the AVG problem.

    Adding .nyud.net doesn't help...

    This brings back memories for me.
    Only because i got it 3 times...
    By going to (enter rom site here [​IMG])
    but then i just do system restore to whenever.
    I lose some files from system restore but thats all.

    But, your problem is already solved i guess [​IMG]

    Once you've done that, restart, scan again. If the security fake continues to show boot into safe mode by holding F8 as you start up.
    Next, go to http://www.malwarebytes.org/ and download and scan.
    Afterwards get some antivirus software such as AVG, Avast, ESET etc. Nothing with McAfee or Norton in the name.

    Also, one more thing. If you are scared that this will happen again, keep a copy of the scanner on your HDD in case.

    Reply if you have more trouble.
