But do you know if you have information about the action of this malware in AVG?

I'd try waiting for AVG/AVAST to reply

Or try their forum or bleeping computer.

From what I read you would know immediately after you installed a Fake Flash Player. The link I supplied showed the screen.

AVG blocks BadRabbit
by Avast AVG Team Avast staff AVG Staff / October 26, 2017 10:19 AM PDT

We are very much aware of BadRabbit and have been blocking it in affected countries, which are mostly Russia and Eastern Europe. AVG and Avast are stopping BadRabbit (identified as Win32:Malware-gen)

Our threat intelligence team has also provided a detailed writeup on BadRabbit, how it behaves and some of the tricks it uses to try to avoid detection.

Looks like another self induced problem.
If folks want to do dumb stuff and expect their anti products to protect them I wish them luck.
Learn how to make and restore a complete backup.
They will need it often.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
