I have got this on my system today after trying to get a product key for my camera. I have followed the instructions and downloaded the Malwarebytes to the desktop. But when I try to open it nothing happens. Can someone please help me.

Thanks

The computer seems to be running fine. I am doing a scan using AVG now I will let you know if it finds anything. Is AVG a good program or is there a better one that is free? I would pay for a better one if I could use it properly. I used to have McFee but a computer guy I know took it of! He didn`t like it.

Now you should Set a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since System Restore is a protected directory, your tools can not access it to delete these bad files which sometimes can reinfect your system. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
    [*}Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Then go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "OK".
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
God Bless you and yours too. Have a Blessed Easter. INRI
