Infection by Virantix - braviax.exe

After a user attempted to open an attachment on an email message that was ostensibly from Southwest Airlines, but which was really malware, her system rebooted and kept popping up a ballon message from the system tray that "It is recommended to use special antispyware tools to pervent data loss. Windows will now download and install the most up-to-date antispyware for you." The message, which misspelled "prevent" was really coming from rogue antispyware software. Such messages are common to rogue antispyware that attempts to trick users into buying the software after the software has managed to surreptitiously install itself.
