Hey, I'm struggling to find anything to remove this fake app attack virus thing. I don't know what site I got it from and I have tried numerous full system scans and searching online for help. I came across this site and was wondering if anyone would be able to help me out.



Processor: Intel® Core™ i3-2350M CPU @ 2.30GHz 2.30GHz

RAM: 8.00GB (7.89 GB usable)

System type: 64-bit Operating System


couldn't tell you anymore than that I am afraid.


I saw this thread http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/519643/firefox-crashes-norton-fake-app-attack-misleading-application-file-download-3/ and was wondering if I did the same thing would it work?
