FaceBook Virus RRS feed

  • Question

  • Problem One:   After logging on and looking at emails from facebook friends I had a virus begin to download onto my computer.  I did a hard shutdown to prevent it from loading, however I do not know what type of virus it is and my computer fails when trying to do a system restore (several times).  Does anyone know how to fix this or what it is?  Any suggestions are welcome.

    Problem Two:   Today, the same day, a friend of mine had the same problem, only I think she must of hit "ok" because her computer has a large Windows Security Alert displayed on the screen stating that she has to buy a $60 or $80 update.  This virus overrides everything.  You cannot do anything through task manager, you cannot access any other screen, it will not let you close it out to even try to fix the problem.  You cannot access the internet, nothing.  Please help. 

    Thank you!
