    The evil pop up .mbs.

    hi everyone i turned my laptop on today and logged in to find a pop up which i have never seen before
    i traced it back to my system 32 folder. every time you delete it will come back again.
    i did some research about it and many other people have been affected by this pop up [hr]

    the trick to remove micro billing system is to go onto task manager then find mbs
    right click and end process tree then go onto your system 32 folder and delete the file called mbs then the pop up has been deleted
    this might not work for everyone but it has worked for me

    please let me know if any one else has had this problem :?:

    Master Tuckey where have you been on your laptop!

    I suggest that you download a spyware removal tool, if this mbs is spyware.
    My fave is ewido, however, I take a more holistic approach to spyware and use a number of different products on infected machines.

    With that in mind...

    should you be doing things that get you riddled with spyware, try using a Virtual Machine to visit more dubious sites. Once your visit to the site is complete, the VM can be closed down and all that you've done deleted, leaving you VM machine as new when you return, and leaving you laptop spyware free.

    Clearly I'm missing out on all the fun. I demand more Linux compatible spyware/malware.

    Try using something like Windows Defender (it's free if you've got legal windows).
