So, I've run across a few viruses in my time and my searches for answers/fixes have led me here often enough that I figured it's about time I made an account. My most recent trial was on a laptop I had (which I have a backup image of the hard drive for) that got a nasty dose of false virus scanning software and caused me a bit of a headache, considering I was at work when it happened. I used combofix and it worked amazingly. So, now I'm off to see if I can't find some preventative measures :thumbsup:

Hello and :thumbsup: to Bleeping Computer.

Be sure to check out the New User Orientation and the excellent Tutorials.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

The best preventative measure, after installing a layered application protection, is to be extremely cautious about your Internet use.
