Running a dell inspirion laptop, windows 7.
Yesterday my son was playing on "Moshi Monsters", a very popular online childrens, Play/Network site.
He had, what he said was a strange window pop-up, so he just closed it and then the Laptop just went blank!
After alot of playing about trying to get a very frozen laptop to do anything, i managed to run superantispyware.
It picked up Trojan.agent/gen-injector in 12 locations.
It quarantined the offending critter, shutdown and rebooted. Said it was all clear!
I also ran Malwarebytes after which came up clean.
Forgot to say, the Anti Virus we have is Sophos, which didn't detect anything!!!!
The laptop seemed to run fine after that.
Just to be safe, in my eyes at least, i also did a system restore, and rolled it back a few weeks to when i knew it was clean. Not sure if this does any good!
Just to be safe again i ran scans, with SAS, MBAM, And Sophos. All came back clear.
Can i take it that the offending virus has gone?
Still a bit pi**ed that The virus just skipped past Sophos without any problem!
Hope that all made sense......Thanks for any input.
This laptop is always wired, never wireless!
