TROJAN **Antivirus Live** is FAKE! Beware!

Start of a new class.... SS has been in classes for a week now, mine start today... Tried to get onto the laptop, but low and behold.... VIRUS!!!

If you get something on your computer telling you that you've got a virus and it's from Antivirus Live, DON'T CLICK ANYTHING!  Just close that window and go to - they have a great way of getting rid of this very invasive program.

I ended up closing out of everything, rebooting into SAFEMODE WITH NETWORKING (you definitely need to be able to get online and download the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (<--- in fact, just click here if you want and click on "Download Free Version" - blue button on the left side of your screen) and then I ran the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware program, scanned my system (a full scan took about 1.5 hours) and then had the program delete the infected areas.

Seems to have worked (knock on wood) thanks to the and!!

Has anyone else had any issues and/or solutions to mention?
