    So this morning I woke up and found my boyfriend had downloaded Security Tool and performing a scan on our laptop. My desktop has gone black with no icons anywhere and random warnings keep coming up like File is infected with a worm and is trying to send credit card details to a third party and when I try to open notepad or malwarebytes it closes the program and says it is infected with a worm. This teaches me for nodding off early and leaving the computer illiterate one to his own devices. [​IMG]

    So where can we help ?

    i'd recommend disconnecting from the internet, you wouldn't want any more credit card numbers being sent.

    I have never and will never put any details like that over a computer - too risky so am okay there.
    I have tried to download the removal program from that link lolzed but when I try to run it it says the file is infected with a worm and wont allow it. Should I just uninstall it and then try and run Malwarebytes??

    When I try and get task manager up to kill the processes it says it's infected with a bloody worm.
    I'm going to take the face right off him when he wakes up...

    Start your laptop in "save mode", then the program should not run and you would be able to delete it

    Right I am logged on in safe mode with networking and I have opened task manager and in the processes I can't find 4946550101.exe
    Should I uninstall and run Malwarebytes?

    Ok nice, your in "save mode".. the program wont start now so it wont apair in processes list;)

    continue with the next stap, remove the registry keys

    This key will start the virus at startup:
    make sure that you delete this one

    Right I have run malwarebytes and it detected 5 infections, which I have removed. I have had no warnings and my desktop seems to be back to normal. [​IMG]

    There's a sticky here, 'ya know. Follow it to remove anything that may be leftover, and to prevent future infections.

    I've dealt with a version of that (or similar symptoms). Just keep slammin CRTL+SHIFT+ESC on login to launch the proc manager before the virus can block it!
