For awhile I was not even able to access my control panel and all my restore points were infected and no optional ones to click before the date of the invasion.
Spybot, AVG Antispyware, Windows Defender, and best of all, SuperAntispareware was catching things that others had missed. I use TrendMicro PC Internet security (version 12.4.1015), though at this time I'm not sure how much faith I have in it. I think i could possibly be infected, but am unsure. It was catching Trojans on the fly, but I can't change certain setting in it that stick and I can't run it in safe mode. I have also been using it as my firewall. My husband (who is networked to my computer, is using a second license for Trend Micro for his computer (his is showing no signs of infections).
SuperAntispareware kicked some butt and seems to have stopped the the popups that have been terrozing me. I though I had everything in control earlier this evening...the pop-ups have stopped so far, but the virtumonde things keeps popping up when I scan with Spybot.
Please help me get my computer free of this stuff. At one point I couldn't even access my control panel, but have had it back for a couple days.
What's my next move?
Any help would be much appreciated as my poor computer has been Christmas "scrooged". For 2-3 yrs no problems, now I'm bombarded.
If needed, I have a list of many of the culprits that have been detected using some of these programs.
Please help me as time allows.
TIA, Carol aka TazzyD
edited to add: I'm afraid to hook my nikon camera or insert the cflash cards or hook my ipod to the computer right now as I am uncertain whether they could get infected by some of the malicious crap. Part of my Christmas is to be the Christmas photographer.
