Why is it that ALL malware changes your search from Google to Bing? Is Microsoft sponsoring these guys? Seems mighty suspicious to me. Maybe it's because they want to piss you off... who wouldn't be pissed off when being forced to use Bing.
So a run of Malwarebytes (which I had to send to her via skype because the malware put in a proxy and wouldn't let her download it) and it found 562 pieces of Malware.. WTF???
Anyway, it seemed to remove everything and the PC is back to normal. However, we have established a new rule.. NEVER EVER EVER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES USE IE. She is now on Chrome with adblock running to prevent those adds asking to "click here to clean viruses".
Don't complain about people using adblock, we wouldn't need to if they weren't so obnoxious and in your face.
Its my birthday and I can bitch if I want to. :P
