What to do if my computer is infected by a virus or a malware?
I've been hit by this one three times in the last 3 weeks. It just suddenly pops up with a scan and freezes out every function on my system. I'm running AVG virus scan, (up to date), and even Spybot Search and Destroy, with Immunize on, and still this thing got me again today.
I've been quickly fixing it by shutting down the system and doing a system restore from command prompt. then I scan everything again and all is fine. But once again this AV security suite pops back(a week later), even with the other protection. Today it just popped up suddenly while I was eating lunch. I couldn't even go to websites to search for another fix.
Any ideas? And at this point and after this many years of dealing with this type of attack how come there aren't so many more of these crooks in jail?
