I tried to open and intstall a bonus software tool called The+Platnum+Approach.zip as an administrator and right after 75% of my decktop Icons were repalced with mozilla file icons and now the malware will not let me open any *.exe files or run any programs.. The malware just keep asking me if I want to save files to my computer that I have already saved. Firefox recomended that I run the Super Anti Spyware tech edition and that ran and discovered 99 suspicious file which I put in quarantine. I'm guessing that the Super Anti Spyware was able to open because the downlowd file was put into a file randomizer before it was sent to me. The software did nothing to fix my current symptoms though. Also firefox just sent me an updated new version 9.0.1 but the malware won't let me install it. I am using Windows Home 7. I am afriad to intall anymore software until I can have an idea what type of malware this is and have a good strategy to disable it.

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
