We recently got a virus that tries to look like it's from microsoft. It\nbrings up a window that looks exactly like the "security center" in the\ncontrol panel (win xp). It then brings up another window that looks like\nit's from microsoft and seems to be a program called "xp smart security". It\nacts like it's running a scan and then says you're infected. It doesn't\nallow any other programs to run.\n\nWe got this in spite of having a firewall and real time virus protection.\n\nFortunately, it only affected our limited access account.\n\nI was able to get rid of it using a malware scanner, but it disconnected all\nthe programs from their files and now, whenever I try to run a program in\nthat account, a window comes up asking which program or file to use to run\nthe program.
