Yesterday I seemed to have contracted one of the many variants of the Antivirus 2012. I am currently in the process of following the self help guide in the system, but I wanted to ask a quick couple of questions if anyone could give me some general advice:
1. I am running Norton 360 and am able to pull up and run a virus scan (which I'm actually in the process of running a full system scan). I ran the rkill program to hopefully shut down the virus process (which seems to have worked). Should this scan catch and delete the problem for me? Or do I have to run MBAM? (I plan to run MBAM just to be safe).
2. I've never tried to do a system restore before, but knowing that I contracted this virus yesterday, would restoring to a point three days ago take care of this problem for me? Is that a good idea?
3. This is more of an opinion than anything else... but is Norton 360 a good enough product to protect my PC? I hadn't had any issues before this and still have another year on my subscription.
I know this has somewhat violated the one question per thread, but 2 and 3 are quick basic questions if anyone could garner some general advice. Thanks for all you guys do at Bleeping Computer!
