It's called "WindowsRecovery" and it uses four puzzle pieces as it's logo.
My wife picked it up, and after running rkill it left me with a black background and empty "all programs" (I'm using XP/SP3).
When I clicked on C: the only thing there was the rkill log.
After changing folder options to "show hidden files" I can see the desktop icons again, and the C: drive files.
However, "All programs" is still empty.
I cannot get MBAM to run, and my regular Anti-virus sees nothing.
I attempted to run "rkill" again and was told "access denied" but by the "red x" you can tell it's the rouge anti-virus doing it.
Has anyone else run across this variant, or have any Ideas on how to beat it?
***addition*** it also tells me that my hard drive is corrupted.
