    Windows Vista Antivirus 2010

    So, has anyone else got the Vista Antivirus Virus? It IS the most annoying virus I have ever had to deal with. I spent last night and the better part of today trying to get rid of it, and nothing worked until... Malwarebytes. I just downloaded the free version and boom, problem solved. I don't think my problem came from the virus on here though.

    Try a tool called combofix. The proper version can only be downloaded from www.bleepingcomputer.com. It gets rid of these annoying things and doesn't need to be installed like Malwarebytes. Only issues with it is it doesn't like other AVs so you will have to disable your existing AV or if you can't do that remove it.

    i use combofix pretty much daily at work. it is updated 2-3 times daily, so whenever you go to run it, always check bleeping computer for their latest version.

    Malewarebytes is a great program. It picks up a lot of malicious shit that other programs don't.

    the new viruses are awesome... hah they update everytime you boot so antivirus can't catch them.

    Now we are moving to "white listed" applications... which is good. Meaning you can't run them unless they are on the list.

    ie9 blocks alot of this junk also.

    no it wasn't firefox had tons of holes in it also... actually more than IE...

    these viruses hack your antivirus and network connection, they morph everytime and they directly attack the patches.
