I hate stupid trojans that pretend to be antivirus programs and shut down my computer.
As if I won’t notice that I never installed this program.
As if I will just hand over my credit card info for this strange program to “fix” viruses that do not exist.
As if I will not notice that the program has shut down all other functionality on my computer.
I am not an idiot, thank you. I am, however, spending several hours trying to remove it. If that fails, there will be reformatting. And then reloading.
I had this exact thing happen just four months ago. And it looks like this one snuck in through my Java plug-in. The one that runs half the websites I use. I don’t know what the hell I’m supposed to do about that.
This is not what I wanted to be doing with my day.
