Got one from StopAdmin and simply deleted it.

Coincidentally, ...and I ain't kidding...

I ended up getting a virus on 1/18/10 called "Internet Security 2010." It is an "antivirus-Virus" and is one pervasive sonuvaB....

once uploaded, you can't log on to the internet and if you can, tabs are redirected elsewhere. "You're infected" bubbles galore and it changes your desktop picture. Poop up bubbles telling of your infection never end...what a nightmare. Microsoft ranked it a 5/5...my tech guy had my tower for 3 weeks.

Now I'm up and running again.

I got the same exact one back in December, the bad thing is it looks very authentic.

Thing about that one is, you unknowingly let it into your computer through your actions. It will popup as a virus warning w/a fake windows screen. It appears as though your computer is alarming you listing viruses that you don't have but it's a trick to get you to accept the download. It basically locks up your computer like you can't do anything else but click to fix it by downloading this Internet Security 2010 fake software. If you can get off the internet the window is easily deleted and download avoided -

I had a few attempts thus far by this one and always managed to foil it. You really need to be careful to not click on anything. Even trying to click off the virus warning screen can give it the OK to download -

Your best bet for updates by softwares is to make the setting where it needs your OK to update anything at all. Some people have it set to automatically accept updates which is the kiss of death -

It's shocking to me that so many people get viruses. Windows itself does not have virus protection on a user level that will alert you, as that is taken over by the antivirus that you install... So why would you accept a box from Windows about a virus? Windows Defender is one of the stupidest things Windows has, and I can't recall the last time I even touched it.

If you're that bad with viruses... Linux Mint. Problem solved.

This one came piggybacked in an email from my one daughter's friend...to her. One of them [4 others in the house] had to click something to activate the damned thing - to which I loudly explained the importance of never clicking anything you don't know a damned thing about - but it's gone now...

I just got a PM from the same username, Admin&Moderator.

They're saying that my computer has a virus and if I don't click the link they provide my account will be deleted... They really take me for an idiot I think...
lol
