My computer has been infected with a really nasty thing. It seems to have completely taken over my computer! I'll start at the beginning -
At first my husband wasn't able to access the internet so I told him to run spybot and adaware as well as Symantec. He did and they didn't catch anything. So he turned the computer off. When I got home and turned it back on, my wallpaper was a red screen with a biohazard symbol on it saying something about my privacy.I also could not access "my computer," "desktop properties," and a number of other functions. My "administrator" had apparently disabled that ability.
I have since tried to run SmitFraudFix (it will not run at all on the computer), SUPERAntispyware, McAffee, but to no avail. Symantec will no longer run. After running SUPERAntiSpyware, the extra icons are gone, but the rest of the problem remains. I have heard of trying Combofix, but I can't download it onto my computer. I was using a jump drive to transfer files from my husband's computer to mine, but now that drive is fried (no computer will read it).
I can't access the program to get an HJT file because I can't access the internet on that computer.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I really can't afford to just wipe the computer clean, I have a lot of valuable information on there.
