    Default OT -HUGE WARNING!!! - RADY AND ALL OTHERS CHECK YOUR PC'S!!!

    I know this is off topic but its a huge problem...
    The last 2 nights I have been wrestling with my PC to remove a virus that my PC at home received. Monday night 777 files were infected, last night 2437 files were infected 2433 were cleaned.
    My PC doesnt start up normally and I have to log on in "Safe mode - with networking"
    anyone else have this?
    This morning I checked my email and got one from "Rady"... So please check your PC's for viruses... There are free online virus scans...

    go to Google, search for "Online Virus Scan" and Trend Micro offers a good one...
    Below is the email I received.

    OK man, just check out the comp with some antivirus progs. I strongly recommend Norton Antivirus.
    And one more thing, put a prog called Black Ice which blocks all exe files that are running without your permission.

    Thanks for informing!

    Then you definitely need to lock up that process. Is it visible? If you have another HDD just put the infected one in a slave modeand run Windows from the other one. Then try to search for infected files and running processes. It's very important you put the infected HDD in a slave mode. But before doing that install Black Ice thing on uninfected HDD so it would prevent virus from running on your second HDD.

    unfortunatley I have just on HD, hopefuly I can kill this thing tonight...
    MY PC guy said it may be hiding itself. He had me look in the registry and i killed about 7 items in there.

    But that black ice thing sounds good, could you link me to it?
