Antivirus 2009 - Great write-up on cleaning up an infected system
This is an excellent account in removing one of the most popular malware attacks currently circulating. The use of Ariva's AntiVirus free standalone removal tool on a rescue CD appears to be a good cleaning resource that I discovered in this account.
An early present from the makers of Antivirus 2009!

QUOTE: Twas five days before Christmas and all through the house, no malware was detected on Windoze or MacOS. When all of the sudden and to my surprise, my Daughter shouted "Dad!!!!!" with big/frightened eyes! "I just wanted to play fashion dress-up and powder my virtual nose but when I went to the site, the Internet Explorer froze! It then launched another window with scantily-clad girls and now nothing works, I can't even change my curls!! Oh please help me fix this, did I do something bad? Oh please help me Daddy and please don't get mad."
QUOTE: I've had reports of excellent, free help for removing rogue antivirus from Microsoft's technical support - "Customers in the U.S. and Canada can receive technical support from Microsoft Product Support Services at 1-866-PCSAFETY. There is no charge for support calls that are associated with security updates".
