Think Point Virus - 11/08/10 09:54 PM

I just spent the last two hours cleaning out a virus called Think Point.
It disguises itself as a software solution to itself that cost and hoped i would pay with my credit card to help me remove it. tricky little bastard.
It was put in by someone using my computer while i was out to check facebook and opened it on their facebook account and downloaded into my computer.
I'm passwording my computer and shutting it down when i walk away.

I've used Malwarbytes with great success to remove that virus. I installed it to a memory stick using a different computer, updated it, then ran it on the infected machine and it removed that virus. Sneaky bastage it is as it shuts down your regular virus protection and stops you from installing/updating other virus protection software.
