===>GirlFriend's XP netbook has the Live Security Platinum virus with all the usual symptoms ===> Live Security Platinum popup asking for permission to access paid version, redirects, etc etc. Is there no standard procedure dealing with this? A few other sites, such as


provide steps that don't require the posting of logs or indivual help, but I thought to ask here first.

Also, I'll mention that I was last here on BC (in a serious manner) three years ago when GF's Windows workstation got a hella nasty virus. BC was the saving grace, and I recommend to all suffering windows users. The whole thing so freaked me out (and pissed me off) that I moved to Ubuntu, no more Windows (yay), and not a single virus since. Why the heck is Windows so popular, its really crap. Even with the intrusive virus software (in this case Avira) they get infected. And in this case, as far as we can tell, nothing except innocent browsing was being done, no downloads, no attachments clicked....
