Hello Boys, I'm back.
What a few days I have had all thanks to the FBI Moneypak Ransomware Virus. This one was a doozy. Still have a few registry issues left over from deleting stuff but back up and running. The virus took away the Internet and the only way into the computer was through Safe Mode. I was pissed!

Had that 2 maybe 3 week ago.. what a pain in the A _ _... Used Malwarebyte Anti Malware. Everything seems to be working OK
Good luck on yours ,,Not sure if it was that Malware or anyother but it even locked out my Norton Anti ... Had to reload Norton.

Malwarebyte, Spyhunter, Mcafee, Ad-aware nothing. Had to do it myself, I guess that's why it took so long, not as fast as I once was.

Avast here, no troubles. Norton and Macafee are very overrated bloated resource hogs.

Yeah I know and Mcafee let it walk right in and Mcafee was up to date too. Beginning to hate computers.

Amen to that brother!

I use Kaspersky and Malwarebytes. I love 'em.:thumbup1gif:

Giz,a friend of mine used (as in past tense) McAfee and it just about trashed his computer too. As far as I know,it doesn't have anything integrated that detects those nasty rootkits. Best to s**tcan that program and get a really good one.

I ordered a new computer today. We have been wanting a new one for awhile now and this whole thing tipped us over. I cannot remember the last time we got a virus.
Once I get the new computer I will be posting up a thread related to anti virus software and maybe others can benefit from my short falls.

You don't have to "sugar coat" your opinion, you can tell us how you really feel:mocking:
