    Having tried various scans, including mbam, all with no success. I was v surprised and relieved to find this talkthrough worked a treat. great work,im very much obliged

  5. Geoff Collins on November 7, 2012 at 12:35 pm said:

    Thank you so much for your excellent removal instructions; I realised that you need a second pc to access rkill and mbam2. I saved these on a memory stick and copied to desktop on my “infected” laptop.
    It may help if those helped, identified the circumstances in which their pc became infected; perhaps it is because the scam mentions visiting “porn sites”.
    I was “infected” by accepting a “friend” invitation on Yahoo Messenger; it was foolish of me because a warning is always given before you click on a link. I will heed all warnings in future!
