nasty nasty virus!!

Think the hard drive is toast....working with a teeny tiny borrowed lap top.,
No idea what it's called, but it comes up like it's trying to scan your computer for a virus...and if you click anything, it's off to the races....so if something like that suddenly appears on your screen....don't click close or pause or stor or even the X...hit "alt F4"...
This thing pulls up pop up after pop up and keeps loading a site called "porno.org"...
Be careful out there is't a jungle!....and I'll bescarce until I get the old box fixed.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm pretty cautious but I would have "Xed" out not Atl F4.

Linda,

A colleague/friend of mine got this same virus and her hard drives was saved by our IT team.

So maybe there is hope. My friend said it was crazy.

Good luck.

Sorry to hear this Linda. Sure hope you get things fixed and are back to normal soon. I tried to fix some networking/router issues myself last weekend. Yup, it cost me a few bills to fix what I did trying to fix it. LOL!

I got a similar message on my laptop, followed by the blue screen of death. Laptop belongs to my employer, so I sent it off to the IT hospital, where they said the hard drive had gone to its final reward. So now I have a new hard drive, a laptop with a broken backspace key and none of the info that was on the hard drive.

Linda, sorry that happened to you. I got a nasty virus from Facebook in late December and ended up getting a new computer..it was that bad. I can't believe these ass**les have nothing better to do than wreak havock on decent people for no reason other than destruction. Sometimes my conspiracy brain wonders if they are not commissioned by major computer manufacturers to increase sales. Nothing would surprise me.

Linda, do you have any idea where you got it?


 o
RE: nasty nasty virus!!

Sorry to hear of your problems Linda. I have the same question as Jessy. I hate to ask but you do have some type of security system on your PC? Did it not notify you that you had a virus and not quarantine it?


 o
RE: nasty nasty virus!!

no idea where it came from...it seems to be very like the one found on People Walmart....but if iut was that it had delayed reaction.
Of course I had up to date hot stuff protection!!I am aware of "textually transmitted diseases"...but as the tech guy said on the antivirulk site said.....they change faster than we can catch up.
Thanks for the sympathy!!

RE: nasty nasty virus!!

May I suggest you post on the Computer Help forum....if anything, maybe someone there will know more info to help those of us who aren't protected etc. Hope things get fixed!

RE: nasty nasty virus!!

Linda, I told you to stay the heck off those porn sites, but noooo......

Sorry, I couldn't help myself. I'm sorry, though, I had some kind of nastiness on my old computer, fried the hard drive AND the mother board and made me get a new computer.

Pah. Makes you just want to choke someone.
