Hey guys...

Sorry to being asking for help, but I'm getting desperate with this... Since 20 minutes ago, my Avira antivir started popping a window saying that it had found a TR/FakeAlert , and from that on, a Windows Xp 2008 antivirus appeared ( a fake antivirus of course ), and started scanning my computer. After that, a image started to appear, saying my computer was affected by spyware, and to saying to get a spyware and antivirus. Avira won't take the virus off, so I ran Hijackthis and deleted the files that were infected. BUT, now the fake antivirus doesn't appear, but I can't go into the control+alt+delete thingy to control the processes and I know that I still have the infection... What should I do?

I use comodo firewall, avira antivirus...

Please help me and thanks in advance!

I just noticed I can't change my desktop image... it doesn't appear the bracket to select it... If I go to rightclick at desktop->properties I only see 3 thingies up there, one of them to choose the theme, another one to choose the screen resolution and colors, and another one to choose the appearance...

Please help me :thumbsup:

HJT was a good program in it's day but hasn't been updated and was really intended for advanced computer users.

Try to run Avira from safe mode in a scan


and see if you can install MBAM and run a scan and cleaning from normal mode


posting the logs can give us some clues as to the next step in removing the infections

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
