This is my first post, so if it is not perfect please tell me how to fix it for future posts. But I have some program, not one I personally downloaded, I don't know if it's spyware/ malware/ virus, etc.... All I know is that it attacks my spyware/ virus programs (I have CounterSpy (Paid), Avast 4.0 Home, Ad_Aware Home, Spybot Search And Destroy, Spyware Terminator, CCleaner, a-Squared (Free, HijackFree, and Anti-Dialer), Spyware Blaster, Spyware Guard, Spyware Doctor (Free Version that comes in the Google Pack), Windows Defender, AVG (Free, AntiSpyware, and AntiRootkit), Eusing Free Registry Cleaner, and all the programs you recommended to download in the Read First Topic). I also once had SpyCatcher Free, but I was forced to remove it, and CounterSpy due to the fact that they were compromised.
I am worried because I don't look at porn.... really, I don't download with Limewire, BitTorrents, or vist sites that I would say have spyware. I do have a firewall ZoneAlarm Free, but might get the paid version. I always run it in stealth mode for both Internet, and Local Servers, because I connect through a router, so I don't want to spread it throughout my family members computers.
As you can see, I am very, very concerned about these little buggers. Yet, every time I run a scan, usually around 80%-90% of the time, none of my programs find any "critical", or "medium" risk infections/ problems. I am going to have to unistall a lot of programs, which I have started to do, but it means that I am neck deep in trouble. The reason being was about one week ago I believed the problem to be fixed, when Counterspy removed four infections, AVG removed two, etc, etc. So, I thought it would be a great time to check my bank accounts (I'm only 17), but it still scares me because, I couldn't remember my username (it had been weeks), and I was asked to provide my SN, which I stupidly did. So a week later, still infected, I am now scared that someone might have my sn, bank account number, all my information. Please I need help it is very urgent.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks for reading my long post,
I forgot to mention that it has disabled my ability to unistall programs using the Add/Remove service in Windows. I can turn it on, and it does load the programs, but where it would say unistall, the entire box is missing, it just says if I use the program a lot, rarely, etc.
