#1
Just a line to see if anyone has encounterd ,that internet nasty vista 2011 malware remover,that is a trojan,that attaches itself to windows secdurity center, or pretends to be windows security center, and begins to warn through various false scans and notices, of attacks and spyware ,and all types of gobeldygook!,I had it this morning,an email sent to me from a friends address, opened and downloaded this horrible trojan,that stops you from using internet,and it is just generally irratating,plus tries to make you buy the product key to release you from the scanning oh! the endless scanning,,has anyone had this trojan ,and how did they remove it,I had to write a registry key and use malwarebytes to remove it,I would love to get those horrible nasty humans who created this trojan,does anyone else feel the same

I seem to recall there was a similar one called antivirus plus doing the same trick too.. thats why i prefer web based email like hotmail, since harder to get past the filtering etc before lands on the PC, that said i never open mail from people I don't know unless from a whitelist that I expect them from.
