Oh bollocks I just downloaded the Sammy drivers from there and was wondering why its copying so many files and slowing down my system. As I was installing it I saw this thread and quickly aborted the installation but it had been running for about 30mins. I am now running zonealarm antivirus program to check the amount of damage done. Thanks for this thread as I would have been clueless without it.

I too am a victim. I realized to late. Running malwarebytes right now. I now remember why I hate windows.

Yup. After clicking on a link someone posted in the Omega ROMs forum to download Odin, i foolishly downloaded it. I shut off Avira real-time protection, assuming i was getting false-positives.

Yep, completely worthless download.

I had to uninstall about 6 programs on my PC. It's sad that it's the very top search result on Google.

Unhappy re: viruses
I downloaded from there yesterday and I've been trying to clean my laptop ever since. I've used mbytes chameleon three times, adwcleaner, zoek, combofix, you name it ... I'd have done a clean windows reinstall already but I don't want to lose my browser histories -- it's my only clue as to what I was working on on any given day.
Anyhow it's not just the ordinary dozen or so variations of PUP -- I've blundered on to attack sites before, but this is my worst experience ever. And it comes up way higher in search when you google Odin than legit links -- must get a lot of traffic. So yeah., we we're idiots but at least we're not lonely idiots.
