Hey everyone,

I am running a brand new Macbook Air with Windows 7 x64 running virtually through VMWare Fusion 5.0.2. I was infected with the MoneyPak virus (confirmed through prior research) while using Firefox. I have tried to do anything possible to download the software to run a log, but I'm having problems simply navigating the Windows 7 userface right now, since it is run virtually. Could someone with a solid grasp of Windows 7 run in VMWare help me through the process of removing this?

Thank you,
Mark

Hi

 

Try this:

 

1)

Uninstall VMWare and the Virtual OS (in your case Win 7 x64)

 

2)

Restart the computer

 

3)

Then reinstall VMWare and then Virtual OS
