The owner of a Dell Inspiron 1526 laptop running Microsoft Windows Vista with Service Pack 2 installed was seeing popups warning the system was infected with malware. When I logged into the system, I saw one such warning. The Task Manager would not run nor could I get a command prompt at the time.
When I checked the system, I didn't find any rogue antivirus/antispyware software on it, though that I could link to the warning. I did find a .wmv file masquerading as an .mp3 file that Symantec Security Scan identified as Trojan.Wimad, however.
