    Its changed my Steam, which I recently just made today, It has changed my msn and i think it is going to change E-mail soon, then I'm fucked, please help ASAP, I think its going to change my DD password again, I have removed the file, But it still seems to be doing this shit, I am pissed off, I'm putting the word out now

    If maybe one of you guys could alert the Avira website.

    Other than run a virus scan, maybe do a system restore?

    [s:3rmdtz0y]Have you tried a system restore?[/s:3rmdtz0y] Scratch that, is the virus still on your computer? Is it still doing damage?

    You didn't get it from the Avira website. How are you so sure about this?

    Run a virus scan or download another antivirus and scan with that.

    If all else fails do a complete system wipe, format it.

    Holy Carp! That's one of the worst virus case I've ever heard! Eh... Since I'm typing in this topic, I might as well say something even if it's very improbable and most likely won't help (but it is an option)... There is one thing that will guarantee the virus won't do any harm... Disconnect the internet, turn off the computer and buy a new one. Not much help (and pricey obviously) but it is an option. :S
    I feel very bad for you. Best of luck!
