How To Remove FBI Virus – Windows Defender Offline Boot CD


Re-Blogged From Affiliated Website
 
Yes, Windows Defender will removal the FBI or Department Of Justice virus lock-down on your computer. With or without Safe Mode use. Windows Defender that is a standard program by Microsoft on it’s operating system is basically a useless program I usually have disabled. BUT it’s offline / boot cd version does a great job removing the “FBI” or Department Of Justice” virus. There are a few other boot cd’s that will remove it also, Windows Defender Offline’s the ease of use, and setup is one of the easiest ones I have come across.
 
“Windows Defender Offline” has a boot cd version AND a USB thumb drive boot up version. Install setup file for 32 bit or 64 bit operating system. “Windows Defender Offline” is a boot cd. Start your computer and boot from this CD (or usb thumb drive). This Windows Defender Offline boot cd or thumb drive, scans your computer before the operating system loads, and removes any infections including this FBI lockdown virus. Note: Boot order in bio’s might need to be change to boot from the Windows Defender Offline boot CD or a USB device. Not all computers can boot from a usb thumb drive, especially some older computers. So the boot cd version is what you need to setup, and run.

Microsoft Security Essentials bombs tests, loses AV-Test certificate


Well, well, well no real news here about Microsoft Security Essentials is there? I personally tried and tested Microsoft Security Essentials months ago on one my computers here, and uninstalled it after 2 weeks. And the reason was it would not update itself at least daily or even regularly. I’d leave the computer on for days and Microsoft Security Essentials would not check or auto update the virus definitions unless I manually updated it through the program. 4 days would go by with an old outdated def file, before I had to manually check for updates. It is critical that Anti Virus programs update AT LEAST once per day, better programs update multiple times a day which is ever better. Every once in a while MSE would auto update itself, but for the most part MSE would not, or did not auto update. Manual updates worked but would take forever to download and install……………….

Some People Just Do Not Learn……………


Just cannot understand why almost every computer I service has these file sharing programs STILL on there computer. Limewire, Bearshare, Shareaza, BitTorrent. Ares, Kazaa, Morpheous, Emule just to name a few,, with Limewire being the most popular.

Limewire downloads and all the others, are infested with computer viruses and spyware. It’s a virus hell! Other than getting your computer taken down with viruses every month or day,,, it can be very costly if your hit with a copy write lawsuit with Sony or the other “Big Dogs”!

Why people have to fill there computer with music is beyond me. Music is the #1 download, #1 search term. Why do you think these file sharing downloads are loaded with viruses in the first place? To easily and quickly spread these viruses,, do you think???

Just because you might have, or what you think is a active LEGIT Anti Virus/Anti Spyware program protecting you that you are free & clear, or immune to this crap…………… got news for you, you are not! And most run these computers till they stop completely, and then it’s to late. Guess what all your music and your family photos are now gone, lost because your hard drive has crapped out now. And to recover them could cost $200-$1000+++.

I tell these customers every time, every month after I finish removing infections, after I charge them about “safe internet surfing”. And they still have Limewire on there computer, with recent downloads! .99 to download music legally, and possibly much safer is much cheaper than having you computer repaired each month.

This is just my opinion,, do what you continue to do, it’s alright by me!
