Searching for Firmware this morning , Booom! up pops a Page saying you have illegally downloaded files , it switched my webcam on , PCEU , looked official , then on the right hand side was a ou pay this £100 fine and this page will clear .
researched it via my phone brought up , how lots of people had fallen for the scam thinking they had been caught doing something wrong , of which i know i hadn't , basically they request a payment , the page looked genuine and official
reboot confirmed Virus aarrrgghh !!!!! , avg had not stopped it or windows defender.
For the life of me i could not remove this damn virus , none of the reported ways worked , file names were no where to be found in safemode , it blocked every attempt to access anti malware sites and updating of AVG and had switched windows defender off , it had also locked document and settings folder's and with the internet wireless switched on it always came up with the page.
so i'm in the middle of a re-install , rather than waste anymore time trying to clear it.
Reports are that this is one mean Virus , so i wanted to start a clean state , rather than risk not clearing it properly.
Looked like an legit drivers/firmware website , trying to install bluetooth drive on my Android TV Box for a game controller , one click later and Boommmmm!.
Look up PCEU you will see what i mean.
Anyway lots crap loads so i will be busy getting it all back. , i would say lesson learnt if i had been up to no good haha but i wasn't.
So be cautious everyone , this sucker of a virus went straight through everything.
