Per AVIRA instructions, I downloaded their rescue disc and did a boot up with it. No cigar. Then went into safe mode and did my S&D, Malwarebytes (free version), and another Avira scan. Still no detection.
The more I read, the scarier this gets as I read that the creator of this put it out there for any pinhead to modify to his own level of destructive deviousness. I read horror stories about identity theft to posting stolen photos various placed on the net and defaming people to the point where they were fired and were divorced! Mostly the deal is to see if you are schmuck enough to believe that the FBI would request a hundred bucks for you to regain access to your computer. (that may be coming..but not happening now)
I called the FBI in my city and they said they had hundreds of calls that day. Really sad the FBI isn't as sharp as they are on TV and move in within minutes to catch the perps.
Now maybe here is a new twist. If this has ever downloaded itself on your computer did you ever see a live open shot of you starring at you on that warning page? Upper right hand corner I kept seeing this ceiling fan. I hardly ever use a camera so I felt really dumb when it took me 10 minutes to figure out that it was MY camera that was aimed back at the ceiling. NOW THAT WILL MAKE YOU A LITTLE PARANOID! Disconnected that sucker!
Long story short -- no solution from AVIRA and this has been around for quite some time. So much for them at renewal time. Does anyone have a clue how I get rid of this nasty thing because I am literally frozen in terror from doing any online banking, EBAY or PAYPAL transactions or even going on FACEBOOK until I can kill the demon. I mean I don't even want to do system RECOVERY because I just don't think that anything less than reimaging would be sufficient given the sophistication of different authors of this program. Obviously it hides well and mostly in encrypted files -- which i have yet to find with the specific KAPERSKY program for getting rid of it.
I would sincerely appreciate the help of those who have successfully eliminated it without an further residual effects.
