I got the FBI MoneyPak Virus last night and did a system restore from safemode. I then downloaded a free virus software program as recommended at malwarebytes.com. As it was running, eventually it crashed out into a blue screen and indicated it was doing a system dump. I pressed the OFF button and shut it down during that.

So I rebooted into safemode again and did a restore again. This time I used Windows Defender to do a quick scan and it found nothing. I worked a little more and there was another system dump. I pressed the OFF button and shut it down.

I rebooted and so far no more problems.

But is there more I have to do? Is it still on my system, or does System Restore take care of it? Why do you suppose I got the two system dump screens. I've gone through the sites with instructions for removal and it seems that doing a system restore should be enough.

I never click an executable that I didn't specifically download and don't know what it is. This is a development computer. I never download or watch videos on here, nor music. I don't do anything on illegal websites. I don't watch porn. I only use this for programming, checking mail. My mail has two forms of spam detector on it so spam goes directly there without me doing anything with it. I have no clue how I got this.

Thanks.
