Windows sufferings

iMac put to sleep with nasty virus

The Windows 7 partition of my iMac was severely hit by a virus yesterday. Fortunately, this is not my primary work environment, but my minor kids were tear-broken.

THE REST...

I never considered it a blessing to be based on the Windows computer platform. This is no less true these days. Yesterday, my 9 years old son phone me, crying that the computer was attacked by a virus, and everything was lost. I thought that he was overreacting, but he wasn’t. Actually, my son is usually very precise and truthful, when it comes to the correct description of different matters of his life, albeit corresponding to his low age. This was evident, when I had a look for myself later that day.

I was able to boot Windows 7 and log in as myself. On the surface, the system appeared completely correct with user interface all normal, RSS feeds entering as they should with weather reports and so on. However, within the Programs folder, most programs that are not default to Windows were erased, and the operating system rendered their sub-folders empty. The user specific folder of my son was also erased, thus all his data had vanished. I restarted the Windows 7 partition of the iMac, and it refused to boot at first try.

Frankly, I’ve neglected to install security software, because it usually slows down all processes, and also because of the linguistic obstacles it represents. As I mainly resort to Windows for verification of Mac produced data, Windows is usually for my children. Being only 9-12 years old, I’ve had to give them all administrators’ rights; otherwise I would have had to approve any change on the computer every 30 minutes.

Usually my son plays online games like Roblox and Minecraft. I looked up discussions in various gamer sites and concluded that although there have fears, especially in 2009 through 2011 about the viral status of those popular games, none of the fears were proved right. Although the computer, Mac and Windows alike, would slow down, quitting the games or even uninstalling them would solve the problems. Yesterday, though, he’d downloaded another software named League of Legions and installed it shortly before the breakdown of the computer. The safeguard of te operating system already mentioned the word virus, but my son didn’t know how to react and instead witnessed how the screen turned black and was showing disks.

The default Mac repair tools was unable to do anything to the partition so I deleted the whole Windows partition. I’m glad Windows wasn’t my primary computer platform.

I don’t know the name of virus, but I’ll follow up on this event at a later time.
