I made a thread a month ago about my dad's laptop becoming infected by a trojan via surfing UG.

That's a 5 year old laptop he bought in a pawn shop in Rolla, a super-hicktown.

I'm on my brand new PC desktop at home, and I just got the SAME EXACT VIRUS from UG.


Wtf?
TOO MANY PUPPIES

Soda sucks.

I dont see how you could get a trojan from a website unless you downloaded something or installed something.

i've been on UG on about 5-15 different computers and never had a virus on them

I have Norton. And I've never transferred a file from my dad's computer.. Both times this has happened, I've had nothing but UG open for a few minutes, and all of a sudden I get swamped with popups and fake security windows.

Norton isn't very good. Sorry dood.

well just scan you computer (if you have norton) and it should find the infected file
you can then isolate it or destroy it. while you are scanning, unplug ur network adapter (so no other visrus's can get in

if you are getting music from Limewire rub a magnet on your HD.


I'm not so sure thats a great idea.

I've been on UG with quite a few computers though, and I've never gotten a virus. Either it's something else, or your anti-virus software blows.

If it is a trojan, it's not from UG if you just had a window sitting open. Trojans are viruses that become active when you run an application. It looks like it's friendly, but it really isn't; thus the name Trojan (as in the wooden horse).

Got to agree with this.... I get the overwhelming feeling you're doing something really dumb with your PC.

Hmm. When im on my dad's PC and get on UG, often our the anti spybot programs we have alerts me that it has blocked some dangerous virus giving popups. Only happens on UG. But, the computer is currently virus free. Pop-up blocker? Though i assume you probably tried that. Get some better virus protection software.

You could start by getting rid of that ****ty excuse for an antivirus program.

Get nod32, then tell me if you still have a problem.

Get norton removal tool - get rid of norton its ass
Get avast antivirus or avg 8.1 free
Mabye get a firewall, comodo, zonealarm?

http://www.download.com/

Lots of software reviews etc get ideas from there,

AVG and Avast will get rid of any trojans, but Norton has always been a problem from my expiriance.
