A couple months ago I had a problem with my computer... my friend was over and he was using my computer to browse game sites.. but he hates firefox so he was using IE and naturally I got a virus.. or several
It damaged explorer.exe and I couldn't get rid of it using pretty much anything i knew of, and in the end had to do a repair install.. though it still required spybot again to finally rid of it
it caused explorer.exe to randomly close and naturally "spirit away" the task bar and desktop.. there would be a new rundll running and after killing it, i could restart explorer...
I'm sorry that's vague but that's not really my problem and it was several months ago..
my current problem is very similar. Same person came over and went to the same site again when i went to get a movie to watch...
I come back and he's innocently sitting in the chair
and sure enough once again i have viruses
It started with virtumonde but neither of the fix programs worked to erase it
finally after a few failures there were no more dections.. i dunno if that's bad or not
Then ad-aware picks some stuff up
and now AVG's running and has picked up Trojan horse.Generic2.JDK
and at random intervals explorer.exe dies again and i have to manually restart it via taskmanager
I think it's pretty much solved, but i was wondering if there are any tips you could offer to make sure it's gone and solved... other then not let my friend on my computer again
