Hi a couple of days ago, i had troubles with my Vista Laptop, I got the security Suite virus and i had troubles getting rid of it, I downloaded hijack this and Malwarebytes but the virus didn't let me open the programs, so I got a tip from a friend that if a reboot my computer and open msconfig and change the settings for the programs that autostarts from the beggining i could get rid of it. So i changed the settings so that all programs with wierd (kawrqgsf)names didn't start, then i rebboted the computer again.

Security Suite didn't start, which made it possible to open Malwarebytes again and do a scan, After the Scan it deleated 6 infected files. Now i wonder if the virus really is gone and if it is safe to use my banking over the internet again?

Thank You
