Hello,

So just today a virus appeared on my computer and it was a fake antivirus called "System Security 2012". I have been following two other threads (links below) to try to help but in the second thread I am stuck because I cannot find the start menu folder in c:/programdata . At the moment the "System Security 2012" antivirus screen will randomly pop up and ask to scan and I am getting messages in the bottom of my screen telling me things are infected, but these messages are coming from "System Security 2012" so I don't trust them. I have Malwarebytes open and scanning, but I would like to know if I am handling this correctly. I am running Windows 7 if that changes anything. Thanks for any help in advance
