I fell for a computer scam!! -Security Tool

It was totally legit-looking! It used all the same icons as windows vista (and even hijacked a couple), and then took over my computer. Do not fall for Security Tool!!!
It tells you your computer is infected... do not believe it!
I totally believed it. It would not let any programs operate besides the internet, and I had to wipe the slate clean. I used the recovery disk... luckily it would let me drag and drop files onto my camera, so I did not lose any pictures, this time. All the websites told me to stop the virus' operation using task manager, but the virus always killed the task manager first.


  1. OOOOHHHH!!! I had this... you should have just recovered to your last "backup point". I just had to lose things from a couple months prior. That pretty much amounted to nothing so I had no problem with that.

    It is a tricky one, this virus.

  2. That is so scary! I did something like that once....Dan caught it in time!........c.
