Idk exactly what it was, but i got it from the deviantart chatrooms. It KILLED my internet explorer i loved so much now if any program tries to open it, everything gets glitchy and i have to restart my computer
In January earlier this year, I got a fake antivirus that told me I had a ridiculous amount of trojans on my computer and wanted me to buy it. I gave my computer to my dad for help, took him A FREAKING WEEK to get it out of my system. None of my files were harmed, thankfully, but now I'm more careful.
The Security Tool virus did something similar to me. What are you doing now to keep yourself safe? Right now, I'm learning how it's possible to survive without an AV. Sounds a bit crazy, I know, but it's possible if I'm tech savvy.
I've installed AdBlock, in case it came from an ad (Though it was on IE, and I've installed it to Firefox). Plus, I'm currently using Malwarebytes alongside CrapAfeeMcAfee instead of CrapAfeeMcAfee alone.
I actually downloaded the (Official!) NoScript addon, and it didn't let me go on deviantART for some reason (Again, this is the OFFICIAL NoScript I'm talking about). So yeah, I wouldn't recommended NoScript.
Hmm... Strange, I never had any issues. I know another person who uses it too without issues. I'm not sure how I can help you but you can always do some research or ask around. Just don't ask a store employee who works at a retailer. Just because they sell the product doesn't always mean they know the product. All they wanna do is sell the product LOL
Not sure if this was a virus, as such, just an issue. Something got into the system and I couldn't access the internet at all without a police scam coming up. I had to borrow my sister's laptop to figure out how to remove it. >.>
