Fake Spyware in task bar - Computer desktop now green with "Your System is Infected" message in huge red letters on black background

Posted 17 January 2010 - 02:03 AM

I was checking Yahoo mail. No emails from unknown sources and no files attached to any of the emails.
I was also checking out photos on a social networking site - Meetup.com. This is an established website, so not really sure how I could have gotten it from there. Those were the only browser windows open. Then I got the pop up in the task bar saying I was infected with spyware and that Windows was going to download software to remove it. I immediately knew this was bogus and pulled the plug from the back of the computer.

On reboot, the desktop went green with a huge warning message in red letter and a black background. It was accompanied by a popup saying I had a worm virus. I don't recall which one it indicated I had, but I am sure this popup is part of the bogus trojan/spyware. Desktop message says, "Your system is infected! System has been stopped due to a serious malfunction. Spyware activity has been detected. It is recommended to use spyware removal tool to prevent data loss. Do not use the computer before all spyware removed."

Please close topic. Malwarebytes finally was able to clean this after several reboots.

Just curious, any thoughts on which trojan/virus this was based on the description? Just want to educate myself about it.

Thank you.

Hi, glad to hear you solved this smile.gif

Its impossible to say what had infected you, other than, most likely a fake antivirus scanner.

This topic will now be closed.

regards, Elise
