Wow this thing is nasty I have to say I'm impressed.
Old XP machine.
Web page pops up shortly after boot you don't have to click anything.
The web page cannot be escaped with "Ctrl+alt+del" "Alt+f4" "Win+R" or anything like that.
Will not allow me to boot into safe mode with command prompt my computer just hangs and restarts.
Allows me to boot into "safe mode" or "safe mode with networking" but gives me the web page almost straight away still.
I have system restore switched off as my SSD drive is small enough as is.
On boot managed to get up task manager quick and kill "explorer" which stops it dead, first tried the regedit fix I found online. This version does not change the reg like the fix said so no joy.
Then got into msconfig from their with task manager and switched off everything
in start tab as switching off just the suspicious ones did nothing.
The Damm thing is still their when I boot up again only now with nothing else to load on boot it gets the web page up so fast I don't have time to get up task manager and kill explorer anymore.
Round of applause for this evil thing.
Anyway in temp accomadation right now so no access to reinstall CD and usb cd drive (its a web book). Will get access to them this weekend so wipe reinstall. Can get my files off with bootable Linux key. So I will live but just wanted to point out this thing got nasty with age so some of the old fixes will not work anymore.
Ps got it from a torrent site. Went to site, download torrent, no exe involved and the torrent file was passed straight to bittorrent. (Was a song not porn in case your wondering, who even torrents porn?) Have Microsoft security essentials installed but was not really serious about security on my web book not enough resources on them to be wasting on Anti-virus and Anti-Malware.
