Sex World

  redshift300 14:02 24 Aug 2007

The son of a friend of mine has been on a dubious site and since then every time the computer is started a message comes up 'Your MBS bill, secure micro sys' it asks for £39.99 as 'Sex world subscription gold'.
Also his microsoft office has seased to work, freezing the computer, this might be caused by the virus. there also seems to be some sort of timer which is getting longer with each start up. The operating system is XP. I recently rebuilt this computer for him as there were so many viruses on it which had done a lot of damage. Can anyone help me get rid of this virus? as I would rather not have to rebuild the computer again. I asked him to switch off RESTORE thinking the virus might be hideing there, but this did not work. Spybot can find it and remove it but it comes back again.
Also can anyone suggest a good parental control software program.
Many thanks in advance

This is not a virus.

The son of your friend has actually agreed to take out a subscription.

I think you need to read some of these previous threads.

This is becoming a thorn in peoples sides, and the internet is loaded with advice and remarks about this programme and MBS. The above posts will/should help.

Thanks everyone for your help.
After posting my request I found one of the discussion sites and am going to try the solution by fhiufhyrefyer, if that fails I will just format the HD and reload Windows (no big deal), that should do the trick. Many thanks again
