|Thank you all I have fixed it (I think) now. I guess my follow up question is -- is there any real way to protect against this "ransomware" other than just using the internet? I mean I never downloaded anything, all I was doing was looking at random videos on sites, I was using Firefox, and also I never ever hit one of those bars at the top that said "allow" or whatever.|
I mean within a matter of seconds from visiting some random site, it was somehow able to download enough s--- to do so much to my computer, I mean it disabled task manager, msconfig, changed my internet options ot be a proxy, installed a fake av program w/ a GUI, installed fake popups to appear of many various origins, disabled the use of most my already existing antivurs and spyware cleaners, installed s--- deeply embedded in my hidden system folder, changed multiple registries, and probalby more and more s--- I don't know about it. Man, wouldn't it be great if stuff you actually wanted to install was this effecient!
But seriously, I don't understand how just visiting a site can do this to your computer. There has to be SOMETHING I can do that would block this bulls--- from happening again?
