Default Re: Have you been seing pop-ups that say you your computer's infected? Well that's this virus. Look inside for screen shots and what you need to know about it. 3 names for it known, Security Tool, PAV (Personal Anti Virus) and Antivirus 7

I have not seen the virus for a few weeks....I believe the issue has been resolved, but if you have seen or heard otherwise please post so!

Hope everyone's computers are safe!

Thanks for letting us know. I've gotten it before, but of course, I did nothing with it except close it, 1) Because I NEVER buy anything on the Internet without my dad OKing it. 2) Because I've seen our virus scanner before, and that was NOT it. Luckily, I didn't do anything with it except close it and forget.

I think you helped me. I had this pop up and I was getting annoyed and I kept clicking off. If anyone told Justin this that's great! I'm not seeing it anymore now.

I got this virus on my old PC ( i have a mac now).. i didn't download it but i pressed the red x. The virus took over my computer, changed my backgrounds, changed my passwords, and eventually wouldn't let me use my computer unless i downloaded the "antivirus software". We eventually had to wipe the harddrive... so a word of the wise... always exit the popup by right clicking it in the dock (i don't remember what it is called exactly) and clicking close NOT the red x.

Yes, pressing the red X can sometimes be as bad as hitting OK! You could also just bring up the Task Manager, and hit End Task.
