Your Questions About Malware Removal 2012

Posted by softwareguru on August 15, 2014

Mandy asks…

I got the Vista Anti-Virus 2012 malware…?

It just popped up not ten seconds ago. I have not clicked anything on the false pop ups. Comodo my firewall spotted it right away and asked me to sandbox it just a second after the annoying pop up, so I sand boxed it. It hasn’t blocked any programs yet (probably due to being sandboxed) and I am currently running a scan with malwarebytes. Anything else I should do?
