I want to share my photo with you.
Wishing you all the best.
The moment Photo.zip is launched for the very first time, a Windows Explorer window pops up with an open 'My Pictures' folder. This is the first sign that your computer is infected with this harmful parasite. Worm.Brontok installs itself into registry and then disables anti-virus applications that can be found in the compromised machine. It also disables system registry tools and the command line (cmd.exe) in order to avoid detection and to intensify manual removal. Worm.Brontok is a malevolent parasite that should be removed from your computer system immediately.
