Hi all,
I've just signed up to this forum in desperation as I just clicked on a link that was sent to me in a personal message on facebook. I didn't even think twice about it and it took me to this video site that looked like some variation on youtube. It said I needed to download flash player 10 which I did........I'm guessing that's when the virus kicked in because now everytime I use my internet browser, it redirects to this damned website DO NOT CLICK (lots of other rubbish after this) and informs me that My pc needs to install antivurs sofrwarre. "Personal security can perform fast and free scan of your computer" it says. It then transfers to a webpage that is a picture of my 'my computer' page where it shows scanning the computer.

In addition to this, my facebook status changed to the url of this website which I quickly changed to prevent anyone else from getting the virus.

I need to get rid of it because I have a lot of important data on my laptop, not least all my dissertation work and composition portfolio for finals of my music degree. If anyone could help me out I'd be much obliged! I ran a spybot check which identified two Trojan entries under the name 'virumonde.sdn' although I have no idea whether this is related. Suffice to say even when I ran a spybot check, the virus still remained


Many thanks to anyone who can help me, apologies for the lengthy description!

Dan

P.S I have a screen print of the page that appears if that's useful
