*Consumer Comment: The "PC Bug Repair" pop up WAS the malware!!
*Consumer Comment: A very simple way to eliminate almost anything is to"Restore" Your PC to just before the nasty hit
My PC got infected the night before last after having used McAfee successfully for 2 years. All of a sudden my PC showed that 45 virus had infected my applications(Malware, trojans, misc. viruses of Low - Medium - High security). I trie to open Excel but is was infected, Powerpoint was the same way and the messages kept on coming back with the request to pay $79.95 to PC Bug repair in order to remove all 45 viruses.
I found this rather SUSPICIOUS and a next to racketering practice that I had never experienced before. Upon removing McAfee this morning my Internet connectivity got disabled and was restored after a painful session on the phone with Microsoft. Furthermore the Security Shield product has nowdisappeared off my programs and my application tray alltogether! So no protection is actually being delivered to my PC.....I called the 800 number and I was told that they would send me instructions to get the application loaded without even verifying my payment information and the transaction number(3362731546).
Definitely a strange transaction with a company whose business practices need to be investigated!
