My computer has Windows XP with AVG anti-virus software. I usually run Internet Explorer, but just a few hours before the attack I installed Firefox, and was browsing the internet with Firefox when the computer crashed. I was actually on hulu.com when I got a prompt to install a version of Adobe Flashplayer, and after this download is when the computer went down.
Does a virus like this usually have a latency period or does it attack immediately? Thanks!
