Damn, today i got a major virus on my PC am im 110% sure it was a hacker, my PC was slow and the virus warning came up and would not go because windows was telling me to purchase antivirus and delete the virus or something. I then connected 2 the internet and instead of loading hompage i gave me a big warning saying you are infected and you personal details like bank, credit cards ect can be accuried, there was a high risk and it showed me my IP,Browser,Location,OS and a few more, strangely it showed the other persons IP, I was going to take a screenshot for you guys but it was to late. So i quickly saved the other guys IP in notepad along with my other documents and saved the whole thing, Once it was saved i ran it on my restored PC and all files were lost except 2pictures, that is really weird y did this happen? If it didnt i would have all my graphic work along with other docs, tuts etc and the other guys IP. Damn! Does anyone know why this happend? Or how i was getting this hacker and warnings?

Thanks

Split from other thread. If you wanted it there, make it clear why your post had relevance to the IP locations.

I have never heard of anyone receiving messages like that after an attack. I think it might be the hacker doing it, and they are trying to soften you up so that you'll give them more information. Just do a full virus and spyware scan and remove all the infected files. Then run HijackThis and Cool Web Shredder (Google them).

Well i dont personally think it was the hacker, beacsue on the right side it actually said download some antivurus and stuff it was showing spware and viruses, but i had to pay for that programe, me and my bro ran norton yesterday and today but it didnt pick anything up.

Why would the hacker do that to 'spften' me up? Giving his IP adress and ads of antivirus?

This is either some nasty spyware or a major virus. I got the exact same thing a few months ago on the PC all I did to resolve the problems was do a spyware and a virus scan on norton which found 38 infections it came up on screen you have 38 infections with a loud alarm playing in the background after that all I did was a system restore to when it was last working its been fine ever since.

if doing a system restore dosent work try this virus remover. http://www.centergrove.k12.in.us/virscan/

Yes, don't use norton. Get a free virus scanner like Avast! and AVG. Norton sucks compared to them. Also download ad-aware and maybe spybot search and destroy. You can get them from www.download.com . Just let all of them scan and you should be fine.
