Backdoor.Bifrose virus

  kindly 10:36 19 Jan 2009

Hi everyone. Thought I would drop a word in about a virus I had caught on my desktop. My computer usually starts from hibernation within one minute. The last few days its been taking up to three minutes to get going. It starts then hangs at the point where the screen shows the IRC addresses and things like that. I do regular scans and always scan things I download but nothing has ever been found. Anyway today it was found and got rid of. The machine is back to normal and one other thing is that I had to ditch all my restore points because I know that it would of been in there as I do regular backups. Still aslong as its gone. I really dont know where it has come from but at least its sorted now.
Cheers for listening folks. Bye for now.

[I do regular scans] I think you need something with real time protection.What security programs do you have Anti-virus.Anti-Spyware.Firewall.You have to stop them from getting in in the first place.
