Windows 7: Kuluoz Malware

Kuluoz Malware

Last night I clicked on a link in a email from who I thought PG&E (energy company) which is known to contain Kuluoz Malware. I am usually pretty good with this stuff, however, my energy company just switched over to PG&E and I had not seen a bill in two months, and when I saw the email I thought, oh, they finally switched over and now I have a new bill. Anyway, I clicked on it and it didn't look right. I checked online and saw that this spam email contains the Kuluoz Malware. Here is a link:

My Microsoft Essentials picked up on this right away and said it cleared the Virus but I still didn't feel safe. I re-imaged my computer from the previous day hoping that would help. Can anyone let me know if the re-image will suffice or if there are other scans I should run to be safe.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

jetblank4, you should not have a problem if you replaced your image of your drive with an image created earlier.

I hope so, however, last time I had a virus and re-imaged the virus was still on my computer. I had to remove with a bunch of tools. Although, the previous virus could have been on my computer for a long time prior to the re image. I would like to make sure as this virus seems to copy your key strokes
