    So I'm surfing the web last night riding the porn wave when all of the sudden pop ups start covering my screen. It says u are being attacked by Trojan horses and a prompted says to stop the attack activate Anti-virus soft. OK so I know its a bull crap hijacking and don't know how to get rid of it since it disabled my web browsing. Then out of the darkness I see a red eye coming toward me. It's my Droid here to let me surf the net and hopefully get rid of the hijacker. Found how to get rid of it on a site and was able to follow instructions so far. Scan still in progress but I am hopeful.

    I had this moved to general discussion because I think it's something that is very much on topic. What are you using to fix this issue?

    I found the info on a site called bleepingcomputer.com and I'm using Malwarebytes to scan system. So far 243 objects infected. Ouch

    Just dealt with this virus at work.

    Search your App data for anything ending in sftav.exe

    C:\documents and settings\(User here)\Application Data\(any garbled words here)\(delete anything here probably ending in sftav.exe)

    Then search registry for anything ending in sftav and delete it.

    Yes I should use protection but it just doesn't feel the same.

    The program you used is one of the best in the business.

    malwarebytes is very good, handy tip: boot to safe mode to perform the scan, only the worst rouge antivirus infections will still start up in safe mode.

    hijack this is also handy to quickly remove registry start up entries, also some winlogonnotify ones as well.
