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 JUST got this virus that has essentially taken over my computer. I am posting from my sister's computer right now.
Basically I got it from some website, i got a random popup which said something like "your computer is infected! buy this product!" and I shrugged it off as another generic popup and closed it. All of a sudden, it is now popping up from my taskbar. Then a window popped up asking for my credit card number, saying I had all these viruses. Then my background changed. Basically; my computer is fucked.
I did a quick google search and I find threads from other websites recommending that I run malwarebytes and something called "stinger".
Has anyone heard of this "stinger" program before? If it is legit, does anyone know a legitimate site to download it from?
arrggggg I hate this bullshit
basically my plan right now is to download malwarebytes on my sisters computer and move it to mine via a USB key, then run it in safe mode and hope to god it gets rid of this thing.
