anyway, piece of crap norton didnt detect it, or detect any infected files.. even though the virus changed my desktop to a big red biohazard symbol.. + multiple browser hijacks etc.

so i got a variety of anti-virus/anti spy programs and totally cleaned out all the virus entries in the system reg, and the entries in the system restore.

then i restored the system back 10 days and everything seems to be fine now, or is it?

is the virus actually gone or am i in for a big shock?

it depends on how long you had the virus. if it was a trojan i think you might be. cause some viruses can lay dormant for a long time until the hacker wants to activate them.

Well when did you get the virus? Doing a system restore may have been your only mistake. If you did, then you have reloaded all of the registry entries you deleted.

I laugh at people that say "well my mac doesn't get viruses!" That's like bragging that nobody breaks into your shack and steals your lawn chair.

My dad had that virus just a few days ago.
Trend micro didn't detect it either.
It's fine now, but it could just be dormant.

I got, what I think is a virus, something that causes my keyboard to stop working, and then the mouse. I rebooted my computer to get them working (temporarily) again and did a system restore to the previous day, ran a virus check and everything seems fine. But every now and then it happens again. Doing a system restore always fixes it but could it be a virus that remains dormant for X days and every system restore reboots that, or is it a virus at all? Or could it just be I keep getting it somehow?

Chances are that it's not gone. You should have deactivated system restore before cleaning the PC.
Deactivate it and do it again. Viruses always put themselves in the system restore folder.

As others have said System Restore wasn't a great idea. Often times spyware and viruses can lie hide within the System Restore directories themselves. You should disable System Restore (which should delete all the restore points) re-run the programs, and create a new Restore point.

Well, when I did it, I set it to go back one day. And it was fine for several weeks.
