I was invited to a group over Facebook that had screenshots of an upcoming nude video game. Yes it was idiotic to join but like anyone else I was curious! Plus there were thousands of people already in the group so I thought it might be legitimate. There was a link (of course) that directed me to download a .exe file... I was confused as to why screenshots would be in such a format but I felt with Symantec I would be safe if there was a problem.
Long story short, the notorious Anti Virus 2009 was installed onto my computer with a bunch of other crap. Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware was able to eliminate most of the problem but I still feel with the frequent computer slowdown and Symantec occasionally letting me know that a trojan has been deleted I still have unwated crap on my computer. Windows Task Manager also seems overflowing with processes!
I don't really know what to do right now, I'm also unsure how to make a Hijack this log. Any help would be great, thanks.
**Edit: I am running on Windows XP and the problems I have encountered are: occasional computer slow down and occasionally Symantec telling me a trojan has been deleted while I am not doing anything that would cause this. Thanks.
