WINDOWS POLICE PRO

Be afraid of this one. Very nasty pop-up virus that wiped out my registry. I disabled my firewall last Sunday to do some updates and forgot to enable it again and by Wednesday I had this. Luckily I know a talented computer guy who was able to add some memory and put a new operating system in, but everything was lost, so make sure you don't leave your firewall off!

Thanks for the reminder, Kim! I wish those who start these nasty viruses got a piece of their own medicine, so to speak.

This is a pretty good article about it. It also has removal instructions.

The removal instructions might work if the virus hasn't affected your machine too deeply. I could only do part of the removal in safe mode and it wasn't enough, so if you notice you have this, immediately go the link posted and try to get rid of it.
