Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I was browsing youtube last night when firefox closed and popped up with a clearly fake Windows Defender panel saying I had viruses. Then it launched a clearly fake virus scan which found I had hundreds of viruses. It was coming from a process called ave.exe, which appears to be associated with something called the sndog worm - though I'm not convinced that's the real problem, it may have just been something another trojan downloaded. I closed it, but whenever I opened another .exe it popped up instead. Only google chrome works, for some reason.
I ran spybot S&D and AVG. Spybot found some registry changes, which I nixed, and it seemed to fix it for a while. Then it happened all over again.
The same thing happens in Safe Mode, too.
For a while I thought it was also the fault of lsass.exe, csrss.exe, lsm.exe, and some others, but they all appear to be in system32 so that seems to validate them.
Otherwise, I don't really know what to do! Any ideas?
