I just bought a new laptop, Toshiba. I haven't had much time yet to really set it up but I did install "microsoft security Essentials" on it, but now I have a really malicious virus called "windows diagnostic" on it. I knew enough after about 5 minutes to not download or buy the program. I've talked with a few people "geek sqad" at Best Buy and it sounds like they just manually delete it, however they want $200 for that but with that fee you get 1 years worth of Tech support, and Kaparsky anti-virus.

Has anyone had any experience with this virus?

A window pop up that says your "windows 7 has detected a IDE and Sata disk error" and goes on to look like it's scanning my system and coming up with all these warnings about critical hard driver error etc.

Any information would be helpful. Thanks
