I, Too, Had A Crazy Virus
Don't know where I got it but it essentially killed my computer. It happened yesterday and it was nuts. It affected everything and it was one of those where it wants you to get a specific anti-virus program. I should have written down the company name so I could sue them. It shut down everything. And I'm going to write a strongly worded letter to McAfee as this virus completely annihilated them. I couldn't run anything so I shut down, rebooted and tried to run fixes and none worked. I even tried to reset to an earlier date, nothing. I couldn't even boot up completely. I was forced to reformat and so far so good but gone are a lot of stuff I had. Pictures and old articles I had written for the website I used to work for. Live and learn I guess.
