    I somehow got a virus last night and none of my applications will open, including IE (I'm currently in Firefox). I keep getting a Windows Security alert bubble that says my wuauclt.exe is infected, then a windows updates icon appears after each bubble popup. I also have a popup that says that my computer is being attacked by an internet virus and it says Attack from: 132.100.72.23, port 23340; Attacked port: 24716; Threat: Bankerfox A, but it just changed as I was typing this. I tried to install the hijack software so I could post the log on the forum, but as soon as I tried to save and run it, the virus stops it from running and I get a popup that says hijack is infected. Please help ;o\

    Well, I just completed a system restore, and it seems to have gone away so I think I'm good. Is there anything else I need to do at this point?
