    Well, whatever you do don't delete all the .hello files.

    I am useing a program used to clean temp. files (you know those programs that clean junk)
    What program is this? Did you run through the document I posted yet?

    Usually those "Optimizer" programs are bogus, like stopsign and others... if it's advertised in a popup, it's bogus (rule of thumb).

    So... Did you do the things listed in that document yet? It's like the nuclear bomb of malware removal.

    Did you figure out which virus you were infected with? If so, then follow any AV's directions on how to remove.

    If you don't figure out which one you've been infected with... I'd cut my losses... backup important data and format/reload. But that is just me. You DO keep backups, right?
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    You better make sure you got rid of the virus it self before doing any of that, or else you are just wasting your time... that doc that was posted above is good stuff. but if you have backups Id just go for the nuke and pave deal. so much less time consuming...
    Everyone is going to die, I am just as good of a reason as any.
