    This program is one of millions. It is the most popular of them, but there have been fake anti virus programs for years. They started getting more and more popular in the last year or so. Thanks for the program. Can’t tell you how many phone calls I get about this specific one however, so now I can refer people to here instead of routing it out myself.

    My husband’s laptop got this worm today. I keep trying to do the task kill, but the black box pops up and then goes away. I can find the app under User Data, but can’t uninstall. Any additional tips would be appreciated. This is an old dell running XP. I’ve got Glary Utilities on the laptop (and can’t run it) and have saved FixBlast.exe to a flash drive, but can’t run that either.

    Oh, and when I try to start in Safe Mode, I just get a list of disk partitions and no prompt.

    Thanks!
