I am running Windows XP with SP1 and have AVG 8.0 free installed. I also use Spybot Search and Destroy and Spy Sweeper. Today I find that I can't update AVG which has always updated daily since install. I can't open Spybot. I've uninstalled Spybot and tried to go to Google and download a fresh version. I can't get to the site. IE7 locks up and won't take me to a site to download Spybot. I can go to some sites with no problem but others just won't work. I tried to download AVG and it won't work either. It seems any type of virus assistance won't work. I even tried to get to Trend Micros site to run a free virus scan online and it wouldn't load the page. A message came up saying Internet Explorer can't open the page.
A friend brought a fresh downloaded version of AVG to the house and after a great deal of work got it to install (after uninstalling the version I had on the computer!) Only thing is that it just won't update.
Spy Sweeper found several trojan viruses that I have deleted.
No matter what I do Spybot Search and Destroy will not start. I have uninstalled it and now I can't even get the computer to install a fresh version.
I couldn't even get Bleeping Computer to open. I am presently typing this at a friends house.
If I have the Hi Jack Virus, I certainly need help and don't know what to do. Please advice.
