I recently received a massive surge of spyware / virus' from a website. The virus took all of my system settings and ...basically turned them off leaving me without a task manager, internet and a slew of other things. It ported TONS of spyware and other programs onto my computer, flooding it. I was informed that the main function of this was a Keylogger, sent to steal all sorts of stuff from my computer. Spybot couldn't help, Adaware couldn't help and my Zone Alarm virus scanner / firewall didn't help at all, all of them up to date on definitions.
After a while I was able to perform a system restore, which fixed most of the problems, but left several very annoying ones behind.
The main issue I have is this : When I try to access google.com or any of its offshoots, it takes me to "Google Security" and runs a scan on my computer. Im not even sure if its really google. In fact, Im pretty sure its not. After the scan, it prompts me to download a fix for it, which I have not followed through with yet.
Here is a list of the infections it detects.
Any help with this situation would be greatly appreciated.
I HAVE EXACTLY THE SAME PROBLEM !
I USE NOD32 and he didn't find anything wrong LOL
I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO ... SO I WILL FORMAT MY HARD DISK .... DARN IT
