|The Spywase virus appears on your computer like this. |
This is the virus and not your computer, so do not follow its prompts.
Last night my computer managed to get infected with the "Spyware Protection Virus", the W32.Blaster.Worm. It appeared on my computer like an official virus protection program, complete with what looks like a Microsoft shield etc. What I want to know is how did I manage to get it when my McAfee virus protection was up to date? McAfee could not even detect the virus! Removevirus.org had a video that thankfully talked me through the removal process. But what a waste of an hour!
