I am new to this forum and website too. I am getting the similar popup mentioned in the forum below except the virus name is Win32.Netsky.Q
I am copying the description from that forum link and modifying the name
There is a pop up message saying "Security Center Alert"
To help protect your computer , Windows Firewall has blocked activity of harmful software.
Then there is a line seperation_______________
Then it says:Do You want to block this suspicious Software?
Risk Level: High
Description: Win32.Netsky.Q is a Trojan program that records keystrokes and takes screen shots of the computer. Stealing personal financial Information.
Then it gives you three buttons to click on:
"Keep Blocking"(which is grayed out and you can't click on it anyway)
"Unblock" (which is also grayed out and you can't click on it)
Now back to the pop up...underneath the "buttons" it says the following:
Windows Firewall has detected unauthorized activity, but unfortunately it can not help you remove viruses. Keyloggers and other spyware threats that steal your personal information from your computer.
Next is an underlined link, it says:
I was trying to download some free ebook in pdf format and it rebooted my machine. I have disabled the internet connection (through wireless switch ) on that machine.
I have not clicked on that enable protection button yet. If i right click on the running application in task manager while that popup is showing up and choose go to process it goes to 'RealMon.exe'.
Can somebody provide me some manual removal instructions ? I am scared to start internet connection on that computer or run virus removal tools as that is my office computer.
