I switched on my computer last Sunday (2nd) and immediately a box showed in the RH corner of my screen saying "Welcome to MonaRonaDona" which stated that it was a virus which was there to "wreck my computer" in the name of humanity! I went to the Yahoo site and posted a question on how to get rid of the virus and several answers came back, all of which I tried but to no avail.
I somehow stumbled on the bleeping computer site and found another way to try to get rid of the virus which I tried straightaway, and at 10.00 this morning (5th) I was finally able to get rid of the virus which had caused such stress to me. I now say a heartfelt thankyou to whoever composed the instructions to get rid of the virus.
There is one small problem left: Every time I open Windows Explorer, I still get the words "MaraRonaDona tacked onto the end of the title bar. Any clues? Once again thankyou to all.

Are you still infected? If so, I would love to help you but would first need to grab a sample.
