I never even read it. The email had "Share-Internation.org and Maitreya" in the body.
Then I go to Youtube to watch a "Benjamin Creme and Maitreya" video, and I clicked on the video, and my computer "violently" rebooted again.
My Windows XP rebooted with the "Restore active desktop" prompt, so I know something has probably been installed.
I am very computer savvy, and have never seen this. I'm going to start looking for the worm/virus/trojan now.
I just post this to start a thread incase others start reporting this "Email or YouTube" hijacking happening.
I just finished a quick Malwarebyte's scan, but it returned nothing.
My other security is Look n' Stop firewall (which should have caught this o_O ) Avira antivirus, Spybot S&D, Spywareblaster.
I'm going to run a Hijackthis log to start looking.
I repeat, I DID NOT open any attatchment fron the Yahoo email, just opened the page.
I may have had it set to "allow images", from the HTML, not sure, but I've heard of photo's hijacking from emails.
I hope this does't have anything with the announcement by Share-international spokemans/prophet Benjamin Creme that the "Maitreya" had finally emerged fom hiding in London and has been on TV. Many think it's Raj Patel, spooky.
That was the video I clicked on Youtube, then my PC shut down.
But I'm going to start jooking for this hijacker now.
