Symantec has warned of a Trojan that has posed as a Windows activation program and duped users into entering credit card information. Dubbed Kardphisher, the Trojan...throws up an official-looking screen that claims the user's copy of Windows was activated by someone else. "To help reduce software piracy, please re-activate your copy of Windows now," the screen reads. "We will ask you for your billing details, but your credit card will NOT be charged."...
Does anybody know how to get rid of this??? If I log in normally, the computer is basically frozen up, I can't do anything. I've tried logging in Safe Mode and running Adaware SE, Spybot Seach and Destroy, and Avast antivirus a couple times. Each time they said they found and removed viruses but I'll log in normally and it's still the way it was. One last thing I've tried is System restore, but Windows said that it failed on two different tries. Any and all help is greatly appreciated!
