  1. Just when I thought they had gotten better, things have gotten worse... I was unable to start in the Safe Mode. It simply will not go there even I turn the computer off in the middle of everything (I read wehre that should get me into the safe mode). Anyway, I was not able to open or run SAS and I was unable to download either the free or pay version. I was able to download another anti-virus program and run a scan. It removed a ton of evil stuff and things were going fine once again until I opened IE. Then all hell broke loose. Basically the virus took control of of the screen saver so I couldn't even get to the desktop without going through the fake software purchase page. So, I powered down and tried to reboot in the safe mode and it won't let me do that. So, I rebooted in the "last known good configuration". I was able to get to the desktop but now the SAS icon had been deleted. I tried to open the other anti-virus and it wouldn't let me do that. Using Opera, I went to yet another anti-virus site but while I could download the software, "it" wouldn't let me run or open it. In another note, I can't open the "remove or change" software in the control panel so it looks like this virus is pretty thorough. Any suggestions at all or do I just download as many photos and docs as I can and start over?
  2. It looks like the wife has the AVCare fake antispyware Trojan, among other things. It wouldn't allow me to open the program the way I normally do (from an icon on the desk top--it wouldn't allow it to open) but was able to activate SAS from the little lady bug on the taskbar and remove the malware. I thought my troubles were over but I guess the kids visited some sites that were evil. This time around the ladybug has been removed and I can't open anything involving SAS even when I name it ABC.exe. I tried to re-download SAS (both versions) but it won't let me run them. It now won't let me even go to your website on that computer which is an interesting twist. I then tried to open it from a thumbdrive and that didn't work, either (renamed it ABC.exe, too). Unfortunately, I put the thumb drive back in my computer and it's now trying to change the registry (which I am denying) and I am running SAS. I am sure I will be able to remove it from my computer but need help on how to do so on my wife's since I can't run SAS. Looks like this AVCare thingy has specifically targeted SAS files and aps. Need help!
