    I am finding these tend to pop up whilst users use google for image searches. Once flagged up on my console I just remove the offending cache folder where the offending .js file is located just in case.
    Example of which:

    107aad15ba6b97acb376b51a8c8c6708987d3035111[1].js and
    107aad15ba6b97acb376b51a8c8c6708987d3036011[1].js

    One of our teachers told me yesterday that over half term she paid 50 for an anti-virus program because she couldn't do anything on her PC unless she paid up......... Wonder if this was the very one?

    I think ebay was also delivering this one (System Tool) disinfected three peoples home computes thus far.

    Pretty much used the following procedure: Remove System Tool and SystemTool (Uninstall Guide)

    I managed to disinfect a machine with avast on, but malwarebytes did a great job at removing it along with other nasties. Fortunately the variation that was on the infected computer didn't run in safe mode and didn't change the proxy settings either.

    Had 2 computers today and my laptop picked it up sunday night.

    rkill managed to kill the processes off (had to use the iExplorer.exe version) and then Malwarebytes sorted it after that.

    Yeah, Seen this on a couple of machines myself. System tool it was called on my occasion... hijacks the desktop - nasty bugger as it stops you running any programs even task manager. Anyway heres a nice easy link to removal instructions . The other link above wasnt as accurate and made you do things that werent nessacery in my situation.

    To be fair, if you're not particularly IT-Savvy, you can see how people get roped into paying for these things!

    I see these ALL the time, mostly they are a scam to make you download the software and pay money to them. Any Techy should be able to spot it instantly and know whats going on.

    Could anyone upload a screenshoot of what it looks like on your desktop once it all comes up? it might be a good idea to use it as a example to show teachers when it happens

    we have seen this lots of times, we have had reports its come from some adverts on hotmail. Easiest way to remove was to go into safe mode and run malwarebytes with the latest definitions.
