Hi Bleeping Computer,

Last night I got the ugly PC Software & Optimization Malware (or whatever it is called). The one that hides all of your files and overruns your desktop, etc., while it runs that fake scan every time you log on. Well, I freaked out. After curling up into a ball and weeping for a little bit, I ultimately ran system restore twice, which at least got me back to my desktop. It was very difficult to even get to system restore in the first place because I couldn't run safe mode as I normally do. I had to click the ThinkVantage button (I have Lenovo) and then change boot order from "quick" to "diagnostics."

After running system restore, I used your absolutely amazing unhideall.exe program. I seriously love you for it, and I want to express the service you are providing is amazing and life saving. thank you.

In any event, I ran a full scan of malwarebytes:

c:\program files\foxtabflvplayer\uninstall\uninstall.exe (Adware.Agent) -> No action taken.

I deleted those, and restarted.

EDIT: Sorry I just saw the No HiJack This message. I also look through most of your historical messages on the topic. I think I should be good to go. It appears that this malware is just a huge nuisance, but doesn't present any serious security threats such that I should be nervous about using my credit card etc.

Do you accept donations?
