HACKED BY GODZILLA!

What is the Godzilla Virus?

It is a "Low Level Worm/Virus" by the name of VBS.Zodgila that attempts to copy itself to removable drives and creates duplicate registry entries every 200 seconds. If your computer is infected two possible side effects would be:

· Your Internet Explorer title will end with “Hacked by Godzilla.”

· You might not able to open any of your drives thru double clicking.
(you should be able to open/explore using right click -> explore)

MANUAL REMOVAL:

1. Disable System Restore (I leave it off because its more useless than msn messenger).
2. Update the virus definitions (or get an antivirus, I recommend avast).
3. Reboot computer in SafeMode
4. Run a full system scan and clean/delete all infected files
5. In order to make sure that VBS.Zodgila is completely eliminated from your computer, carry out a full scan of your computer using AntiVirus, Anti-spyware and Anti-malware Software.

I highly recommend using the Avast, Spybot Search & Destroy, Malwarebytes combo for removing and keeping virus's from your computer.
