This is what I'm talking about:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MS_Antivirus_%28malware%29
I know how to remove these. Removal isn't a problem.
I'm looking for a reliable way of preventing them.
Forcing the user to run with user permissions rather than administrator permissions helps as it prevents the scareware from installing to any system folders, but it doesn't stop the popups. They seem to go right past the legit antivirus software my customers are running.
I'm seeing PCs come back two, three, or four times with the same scareware infections and I need a better condom.
every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.
the "no true scotch man" fallacy.
