I am new here, not new to fixing computer issues.
I got hit on my work computer with the fake Win 7 2011 antivirus trojan, which took my machine down running Win 7 Ultimate x64 that I use for my job.

I believe I got rid of it most notably with information I found here, in the end Hitman 3.5 apparently did the job.

Right now I am unable to run scf, and unable to start the Windows firewall.
I found many people posting here with the same issues after getting hit, so that is why I decided to create an account.

Hello and :welcome: to Bleeping Computer.

Be sure to check out the New User Orientation and the excellent Tutorials.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
