"Windows Security Alert" Virus
by Smidgem - 6/20/10 2:53 PM
My friend talked me into downloading a game that he said was clean of viruses. You can see where this went.
The little security pop-up comes up every ten or so seconds saying "Windows Security Alert: Application cannot be executed. The file wuauclt.exe is infected. Do you want to activate you antivirus software now?". It's now McAffee or the other Antivirus program I downloaded, and it keeps bringing up porno.org on IE.
It won't let me bring up task bar, I can't delete the game I think gave it to me (XIII, it's an mmofps), and it exits my antivirus programs whenever I try to bring them up for a scan. I'm not really tech-savvy, and the only thing I can think to do is backup my important documents and re-install Windows (what we usually do, since we get a similar virus every few years. This one's on a different comp though). If that's the only option, I can do it; all I have is a few digital art pieces and Portal.
