Ok. This is a weird story, but here we go.
I was on the internet messing around, and suddenly, i start getting pop ups. i just x them out but soon i x the window i was on by mistake. I notice now though, that my entire desktop is gone, and replaced with "WARNING! Spyware detected on your computer! Install antivirus or spyware removal to clean your computer.
This freaked me out, and to make matters worse, i started getting blue screens of death i . I soon noticed something though. The screens were fake! i pressed ctrl alt delete and the screen would go away.
So now im freaking out and i go on the internet that my problem is some sort of smitfraud. I install mcaffe, Malware bytes anti-malware, and smitfraud fix. I scan with smitfraud and then go into safe mode to delete everything. I then go into normal mode and scanned with mcaffee, malware bytes, and symantec (which i already had) . Malware encountered 53 problems, and they are all deleted. My mcaffee finds 16, but was only able to delete 15. Strangely however, symantec finds nothing. I then go into control panel and fixed my desktop, rebooted, and thought "wow, easy enough".
!!!I WAS DEAD WRONG!!!
The problem started the day after i deleted everything with smitfraud (not more than a week ago). What would happen is symantec would scan 600 trojans when i started pc, and it deleted it. I was worried, but my pc performance wasn't hurt at all, and i thought symantec was deleting them, so no harm right?
Well it kept happening everyday, until two days ago. Two days ago, symantec started quarantining everything, instead of deleting it. I didnt think that was a problem until yesterday, the trojans multiplied from the normal 600-1000 to 2,500 . Now i came today with over 25,000!!!!
Help me please! This is a good computer and i have spent $1000's on it, and have many things on it that i dont want gone.
I dont wanna rush you guys, as i have been reading through this forum and have seen all the work you guys do, but please help me, because at this rate, i will hit over 100,000 trojans. And i fear the problem will be harder as more and more trojans are dl'ed.
(Also, remember that NONE of the trojans i have r being deleted. I dont know how to stop symantec from quarantining them!)
