About 10 years ago, there was a virus that did something similar, as I recall it was in TSR or DOS?, and what had to be done was you had to pull the plug as the virus was running itself, corrupting it as you would do any other application (except this time that was the whole point). I did the same thing with this new one and, after 3 tries at trying to time the unplugging, it worked. Now I can really shut my computer down for real, and no blue screen.
Has anyone else had a similar situation, I'd love to hear an easier method of getting rid of this sort of thing. Since no anti-virus ever found a virus, I still don't even know what to call the offender, I just know it had control of my operating system for a few days. Any comments, please?
