Hi. Last week I got this virus on my laptop and followed the steps to fix it: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-windows-recovery.

Computer seemed fine for about a week. But now it's back. And it's behaving differently than before -- tried to keep me from running Mbam by popping up "Setup: Access Denied" windows. I've got the scan running now. But I am now wondering if this thing is really and truly gone.

Also, I haven't managed to get this on my old desktop. Does anyone have any ideas why the laptop might be susceptible? Are some security programs letting this through and not others? Or is there a program that is vulnerable that I might have on one but not the other?
