    Bankerfoxa, other matters

      Recently, I encountered the Bankferfoxa virus on my computer. I call Best Buy for a customer service number, and they gave me the following number:

       

      877-314-3518 which refers to Yogi.net

       

      From the session with Yogi.net, I restarted the computer, pressed F8 a few times, went into safe mode, started a McAfee scan. I did this a few times, and the computer would turn off. This happened a few times. Eventually, restarting the computer, I found no sign of Bankerfoxa.

       

      Some of the problems that turned up.

       

      TMP/Temp Files

       

      MMC could not create snapin

       

      Windows Update Problem

       

      HP Advisor has stopped working

       

      junk files

       

      malware/spyware

       

      Registry
