I've also been infected with this .. yeah through an email from
microsoft.com .. should have been more alert I guess .. but anyway its way
I was able to disable the thing and delete part of it, but I think i've made
things worse somehow becaues bits and pieces of it are still hanging on ...
My desktop has been replaced by an Anti-virus message that I can't shift.
Also, I can no longer access my screen savers because when I go through
control panel to set the screen saver I get this message "Your system
administrator has disabled launching of the Display Settings Control Panel".
So I can't change any settings ... Its also now prompting me for passwords
every time i get an email .. JEEZ!!
I'm having trouble installing the malware program that was recommended ...
Can someone please put me in the right direction :)
thanks in advance for any good advice...
For Advisory parallel to this concern.
Its becoming common this days just be advised about links attached via
e-mails, IM message and private message on social networking site that point
and suddenly you can be prompted by a flash update, download or codec...

package the most visible on is ANtivirus 2008.
