Ok, I recentally have recived a computer from a friend and he sais if I can kill the viral infection on it its mine. So I took the task and have been working on it for two days. Defragging and such. I notice obious viruses in the program files and deleted them. He said it had Norton Anti-Virus but it was an old version and it was expired. Well, I thought just run a scan and remove the viruses by hand. I ran a scan and didn't find a single virus and im thinking this can't be right. It was a full system scan. Sometimes either when I first start up or randomly, it will open random IE windows with random advertisments, but its not the usual viruses like *FREE PORN* Or *FREE GAMES* That I had found on other virally infected computers. I have been able to remove viruses without a full functioning version of an anti-virus program, I usally use ones that just find the virus and remove them by hand.
Aside from the pop-ups when ever I try to open IE it shows an infection by some trojan horse. I am not on the computer right now but ill give you more details when I can access it. But when ever I open IE and it shows the infection it will automatically shut down. I will try the anti viruses recomended in this form section when I have access to it.
Any other recomendations?
