I have just spent more than 4hrs working on my own and with Norton Virus Tech’s, resolving issues with the above titled virus. If I find a reliable source of where I picked up this nasty thing I will post it here!

Besides the time, it cost me $140 for advanced support to get it cleared!  I was willing to pay a higher premium because it came with a 7-day guarantee.

UPDATE: February 4th

I am still unsure of where I contracted the virus.

If you run a search on the title of this posting you will produce more than 30 million results…  However, choose carefully because you may catch the virus from one of the sites!

There is a new game in town!  It seems that the hackers/virus creators have gotten much more creative in their revenue acquisition efforts — they will now lock your computer and require you to pay a fee to have it unlocked!
