I have the same problem as kandredesign. I recieved a youtube video, when I tried to open it, it said that I needed to install flash, so I accepted and thatīs how I got the virus. I have a window that appears from time to time, a security warning, exactly the same as kandredesign

MESSAGE FROM WEBPAGE: Warning!!! Your personal computer needs to install antivirus software. Personal Defender can perform fast and free scan of your computer showing things as they actually appear in real life.
(You then have a OK and Cancel button). The Cancel button is inactive.

But I havenīt open it I just close it through the tasks administrator each time it appears. Sometimes it opens a little wimdow that changes the domain ecach time it appears, last time it showed hxxp://powerfullantispyware.com - My Computer Online Scan Microsoft Internet Explorer. Also it opens google page.

My friends facebook keeps sending the video, he donīt know what to do to stop it and Iīm afraid mine starts doing the same. So do I need to change my facebook password?

Iīve done all the steps from the tutorial, so Iīm gona attach the files and wait for a reply.
