    Malware worm

    Ya, I got it on my computer by clicking on New Posts. It started searching my computer, then informed me of potential risks, then wanted me to purchase a PC clean up program for $59.00. Then nothing on my computer would open up not even system restore. So I clicked on the purchase tab for the program and nothing happened, nothing. So I contacted Joey but he said he was out of town in Hawaii, and when he gets back he'll look into it. So I contacted by service provider Verizon at tech support and they couldn't get in to my computer with remote assistance. So I contacted Mcafe security and they couldn't get either. So back to Verizon support and they send me to their premium tech support service. They told me they could get in but it would cost me $109.00. They said they are aware of this worm and could get it out. So I popped for $109.00. They were in my computer for about a hour and cleaned every thing out. This worm will inform you that child prono is being downloaded on your computer and that financial information with passwords is being uploaded.
