Has anyone heard or experienced a virus called XP Antivirus 2012? Somehow I acquired it, and it was tough to get rid of. It seemed to block everything I tried to do, it eventually prevented me accessing the net. I wanted to get onto the net to see if there are ways of removing the god dam thing, but it kept blocking the web pages from downloading. I couldn't even use system restore. As I couldn't get onto the net using this computer, I tried my laptop - didn't have no luck with that either. Although the lappy was connected to the net - wireless - I couldn't browse any webpages, but windows got updated Couldn't even connect via ethernet cable.

In the end I had to reformat the computer.
