My computer caught a malware virus! I was reading my blogs while at the NC Reading Association(NCRA) Leadership conference in Boon, NC when my computer was attacked! Beware! I thought I had good security but this slipped through. It is called Vista Firewall Security 2011 or a variation of that name. It acts like it part of your operating system but it is not! It puts a windows looking icon in your sytem tray and continually pops up windows telling you are infected and giving you a link to pay and download an app to fix. It takes over your machine and changes all the .exe files so they cant run. It blocked my security software. I was out of town so had none of my own resources. So I went to staples where a nice man helped me get it into safe mode. He wanted $219 to fix the problem! Im savy so I went back and researched on my iphone(yeah) and discovered a malware program that could remove the problem called superantispyware. It seemed to remove the virus and then I restored my system to an earlier date. And made sure all my security was up to date. So now I can blog again. Stay tuned.
