  1. Hi where it came from ill never know but it came as a Microsoft security update pop up like real MS S updates i clicked ok and bang nothing no browsers no programs no registry nothing will open it blocks all, even in safe mode my question is if i run an anti-virus from a CD do u think that would work that is if the D drive will run the CD ps. Vista Antspyware 2012

  2. I had a similar rogue virus weeks ago (“system fix”) so I noticed the signs INSTANTLY when I saw these fake scans with all of those pop-up messages. However, this virus unlike system fix, WILL NOT allow me to browse the internet in order to download “reputable anti-spyware program”… Suggestions? Also, should I figure out how to access the internet from my computer, which spyware programs do you recommend for download? Are there EASY steps to manually delete this program without damaging my whole system? I know that rogue viruses are programmed to do nasty things when you try and fail to remove them. Please help! I’m no computer expert!
