This is my first post on this forum. Unfortunately, I am posting because I got a malware or virus. It seems to be a new one, as I haven't found any information by google/bing or on this website.
I visited some websites. And all of a sudden I got pop-up windows about "Spyware Projection" and asked me to buy the software. The malware/virus blocks almost all software, including commandline prompt (cmd), FireFox, etc. It also prevents me to uninstall any software from Control Panel's Add or Remove Programs.
I am running McAfee, so far, nothing was found.
This seems to be an variant of spyprotect2009.
Any idea how to remove it?
