Try hitting F5 a few times, you may have to clear your cache to fix it. Probably just hanging onto old information in the cache.

Mine is back to normal .. I removed the virus and upgraded my browsers.

I think ALT + F4 is better suited!

Actually.... what worked for a friend of mine was pushing, and holding the power button for 15 full seconds. This forces a reset of the RAM... should clear the problem as long as your computer is not infected.

If it is then you need to look into next steps.

Is it normal for your computer to say "all your base are belong to us" every 3-4 minutes after removing the virus? I think I had the omega version.

Try this "locate the Alt and F4 keys on your keyboard and press them at the exact same time"

For Mac you need to reset the PRAM and SMC... should be able to find the links on the Apple support page.

It is no joke .. we had an unfortunate accident with the Deputy MODs .. they had access to some administrative stuff and clicked some link that jacked everything up. It was my fault for not making sure they didn't have access to that stuff. Anyway, a bunch of us got some virus or something, chat was going crazy, random pics being posted, etc.

I fixed the forum database and upgraded each of my browsers, cleared cache .. actually a bunch of stuff. So I am not quite sure what the real fix is?

I've checked it on my iPhone and everything looks good .. same on my wife's computer, works. BUT those computers didn't access during the fiasco!

Everything looks fine now. Should be good to go!

Noticing the best fix for this whole thing, works best when you picked this up from a browser other than IE, cause IE sucks. Try holding CTRL and W at the same time. If nothing comes up on the screen, the RAM, and the cache will be cleared, and anything such as a virus that has entered your computer in the past day THROUGH a cache will be reset.

If your computer returns to the desktop, then you are already completely infected with the virus.

Try it before its too late!

F5 didnt work for me, altf4 didnt work either. The ctrlW is the most universal way, dunno about macs though. It uses a brute-force method.

Funny thing is Samb says that people logged in while the server was infected and caught the "virus". Well might want to check the server again! I'm sure everything will be working fine tomorrow.
