Has anyone experienced this thing? I got it a few times and had to do a system restore. My friend also got it, spent a ton of time trying to get rid of it, then eventually just switched hard drives. Yesterday I got it and it disabled my system restore. I think it also tried to delete my system recovery, but I found hidden somewhere. I couldn't just search for it like I normally can. So I did a system recovery and now I'm getting all my stuff back. It's so frustrating because it doesn't allow you to use the internet and stuff keeps popping up doing fake virus searches. It just pervades your entire system. Also, I had my Avast anti-virus program running. It popped up telling me it blocked a virus, yet the virus persisted. Avast kept saying it was blocking this virus, yet the virus got on my computer anyway and started making it's own pop ups, while Avast kept giving me warnings about it I'm now going to use Firefox instead of IE and I'm gonna try to find a better virus protection program. Anyone know of any good free ones?
