i dont know where else to post this, so sorry if its in the wrong place.
but i just got a virus that called itself “system tools”. it was a major virus bomb that released other viruses! it even turned off all my anti virus and anti spyware programs and made them unable to be turned on! i couldnt even go in to program files!
but as i panicked, i turned off my computer and tried to calm down. then when i rebooted it i started in a failsafe mode. system tools wasnt as smart as i thought it would be… it had created an icon on my desktop and by simply right clicking the icon and clicking “properties” i could trace the program back to its root. it was located in C:/program files in a folder composed of a bunch of letters and numbers.
i managed to delete that folder and now my computer seems to be back to normal.
the program desguised itself as a antivirus program, asking you to buy a license and stuff. but i didnt believe it
just wanted to share my experience with others so that if it happens to anyone else they know how to fix it
now im gonna go and do backups for all my modding files…
