This morning I got the Zeus/zbot virus. I was locked down on Firefox. Call the toll free number, allegedly from Microsoft, for tech support. Do not shut down, restart, etc., or bad things will happen. I could still get on Bing, so I looked for info and found out it's a scam, as I suspected. I ran a complete scan with AVG, and it found something, but it didn't mention Zeus. Don't recall what it said, so I let it be deleted. I did also run the MS malicious malware finder tool, but it didn't find anything. I then shut down the pc and restarted it. Things appear to be normal, but wondering if there is anything else that should be done.
