System Defender Spyware Self-Installed:www.lumus-optical.com





lasikprices
I just was checking out www.lumus-optical.com which installed some spyware on my computer. Anybody else had a problem with it trying to install software? Now, everytime I visit the site, it restarts my computer and has already hijacked all of my information.

Any help?

I have an update with more information about the perpetrators:

http://retaguilas.com
HIPOINT Ltd., S.A.

Thawte Code Signing CA
Thawte Premium Server
Thawte Consulting (Pty) Ltd

"trusted source"

So, upon further research, I came across several files associated with this "Ultimate Defender" or "System Defender" adware/spyware that self installed. It also planted a fake beep.sys file, which was the core of the problem, but was associated with braviax.exe and others.

Fortunately, I got control of the situation with help from Techguys.org, and they helped me clean up the system. Hopefully everything is clear now. I'll be using restore points from now on. I wish I had learned about them before.
