I fought the virus, and I won!

After an intense THREE DAY BATTLE, I am proud to annouce to the world... I DEFETED THE COMPUTER VIRUS!! Damn that sucked! It completely shut down our desktop, and it came out of nowhere!

It was the Control Center Virus. It acts like your computer is under attack (which it is) instructing you to purchase bogus software that will secure your computer from the invasion. We've were attacked by a similar trojan a year or two ago.

Lots of google-ing (from a seperate computer), lots of restarting the computer, lots of F8 and safemode. Thank God this is over with.

If you get hit by this virus, here is a great step by step tutorial to kill the intruder.
