This is one that dumbfounded the Experts.I have eight Machines that have been taken out by a Virus.Each one was covered by up to Date, Anti-Virus, Malware Etc.Each had their RAM and HDD taken out.Experts say it is not possible, yet AVG is working with me on this, they know it could, possiblely, happen.I will keep you all advised.Don't worry, I have the Fix for it, but let AVG work on it for a while?I actually Love this Forum and am sorry I can't Post more often.BTW two are back on line.Ray.January 28, 2010 at 4:57 am #32977DSTMParticipant
Hi Ray,Very short on details here,my friend.Were all these PC'S Networked?What is the Virus name?The only way this could possibly happen is if all are networked together.Also the only type of Virus capable of doing what you state,is a mutating Virus.If you had a good Antivirus,this Virus most likely would have been caught,at the Door.All the best for the New Year,Mate. 🙂January 28, 2010 at 8:29 pm #32978MitzKeymaster
Who has eight pc's ???? I am gealous. I only have 5 at the moment..This is really bad luck getting them all infected... I used to use AVG but I upgraded to Avast Pro...I have not had a worry since...I have tried most of them over the years...I tried AVG for over a year but things kept sneeking in...It wasn't obvious though...Now I have avast on my computers the alarm bells are ringing all the time...AVG gave me no such warnings. Even the paid version doesn't stack up to Avast Pro.January 30, 2010 at 11:59 am #32979Drovers DogParticipant
This is really serious, I just found out my Hotmail has been Hacked.Anyone that got an email from me PLEASE ignore it, if you do click on it, disconnect from the Net straight away.Two Screen Shots of those that diddn't get it. I am a bit slack on tidying up my List, for a reason.They are as safe as I can be sure?http://img35.imageshack.us/img35/1023/screenshot003hj.pnghttp://img29.imageshack.us/img29/5953/screenshot002vo.pngTwo Pages of what was rejected on send out.This happened today, only way I knew was that I got some too?My Windows Live Accout is not operated from a Computer, I removed it when my problems started.To DTSM?Only reason I diddn't give more Details is because no Expert can Believe that a Virus can subvert an Anti Virus by putting Code into RAM, thereby taking out the CMOS and then the HDD, converting the Computer into a Zombie all while you never even noticed and neither do anything else in the whole range of Anti-Protection. I honestly can not give any more Details. Just to say it is quite scarey. If you or anyone else wants to test your Anti-Virus against it, I am happy to sent it on. I have four Copies saved of it.To Mitz?For years just to keep myself occupied I have reclaimed and repaired Computers for disadvantaged people, so usually have a few laying around, mainly ex-government. They got taken out very quickly, one by one. But others, from Private perple, including my own few got it as well.If any Members or Guests know of an unusual number of Friends Computers just to stop running, I would love to hear from them here. I suspect it is Worldwide, connected to the Google/China Affair, that surprisingly enough, there is little Information on. ;D ;DJanuary 30, 2010 at 2:52 pm #32980DSTMParticipant
