I am the luckless bugger who has this sitting on the PC
Google homepage tells me that sites are virus ridden and i should buy the full version... yea right!!
I have googled until my eyes are seeing circles for some way to get this thing off the system but each site leads me to another 'you must buy the registered version' etc

Is there an erasy and possibly cheap way to rid me of this.
I know Firefox doesn't have the same problem but all of my bookmarks are on Google


Thanks

Hey, I got that sh&t on my computer, and my fiancee helped me get rid of it. I got sick of that! Every time I would click on any link to any web page, the window would then all of a sudden show that that site was blocked due to "high risk of spyware..."

Yeah, whatever! I was trying to go to my hotmail and verizon email accounts, as well as look up the news on Pittsburgh's and Philly's newspaper sites... oooooohhh...  sarcastic 

That whole mess started tho when I tried to look something up to do in the Philly area. The site then switched over to this warning page that said that some 300 threats were found on my computer and that I should act quickly and activate antivirus 2009... Even when you hit cancel, it did it anyway and it f---d up my computer...



Do not bring stranger girt into your room. The stranger girt is dangerous, it will hurt your life.

I downloaded and ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. Its a free program and worked great. Got rid of it on its first quick scan.

I tried everything...didn't work! No adware/malware remover worked so here are the steps to clean it for once and for all:

Step 1: Backup your files

Step 2: Format HDD and install OS

Step 3: Bang head on wall until format and OS install complete  banghead 

Step 4: Realize that you will need to spend another couple of hours to reinstall all the crappy windows updates, service packs etc. And God forbid if you don't have any of drivers not bundled in Windows. Repeat step 3

Step 5: Swear to self not to be lured by free online porn


Trust me it works...Cuz I spent my whole day today doing this (not because of the same problem, but I had the same problem earlier) !  banghead

Silverfox,
I had the same thing and was referred to the forums on the site www.bleepingcomputer.com. It's an incredible website with volunteers that will help you step-by-step. These guys have saved my ass on several occasions, including once from the same thing you have. The virus you're talking about is discussed in depth on a regular basis.

That said, Phoenix has a point. Back up your files regularly so you can just reformat when something like this happens, that's the only way you can be 100% sure of virus annihilation. Next time you've got a virus, just cackle and wipe that sucker clean. Convincing Microsoft that your new copy is legit can be a bitch though.
