yes, i had this virus,everytime i shutdown my computer, instead of shutting down , my computer would always be restarted and my antivirus cant detect it.i really became mad and dunno what to do. my only option was to reformat my computer again. but thank goodness i unistall my antivirus and installed another one,fortunately it detected the virus and i found out that the virus stayed at winlogon and that explains why my computer restarted when in fact i'm shutting it down.

eeto.. i've experienced it with my friends PC.. its called "explorasi.exe" which is a brontok worm.. it happened long ago and the current anti-virus of the PC had no cure for it.. well, we had a project to be passed the next day and when we found out about the virus, we thought that its effects would be subtle but then we were'nt able to get away.. the computer suddenly restarts and it really made me angry... you know, being not able to finished it or at least started a few parts and then it suddenly restarts (annoying right?)..and we tried to download other anti-virus.. and yeah, so smart, the virus would'nt allow us to install the anti-virus.. and so, we spent a sleepless day trying to reformat.. and i was like so sleepy when i got home (it was 12 o clock in the afternoon).. i hurriedly took a bath and headed to school..

Hi, A virus known as funny.exe attacked my office pc which has lots of data in it. My office has macafee installed which is not able to detect, later tried many other AV softwares, so they formatted my PC. I lost a lot of data and now I make backups for all the important data and donot rely on antvirus softwares much. These AV companies provided support after some time which is useless as all the important files are already gone

Well,I had been troubled by these viruses before.I was surfing the internet and then suddenly my computer got some viruses and can't work properly.I tried the anti-virus softwares but they didn't work.So I have to reinstall the OS which made me disappointed.
