A few weeks back I was looking up codes for a game that I was playing on armorgames.com. While I was searching, a message popped up and then started doing a virus scan. It said that I had over 1690 infected files on my computer. This program that ran is called Vista Antivirus 2008. I thought I got rid of all of it, but it came right back onto my computer. Now it gives me a message every 30 seconds that says:
"Your computer has been running slower than normal, it may be infected with viruses, adware, or spyware. Vista antivirus 2008 will perform a quick and completely free scan of your system for malicious programs. Download vista antivirus 2008 for free now."
Of course I didn't download it. In addition to this, I can no longer log into hotmail.com, myspace.com, chase.com, and for whatever reason, it won't allow me to activate automatic updates for windows security center. I also keep gettig random windows popping up when I have pop up blocker turned on. The hotmail log in takes me to a screen that says cookies must be enabled, which I do in fact have enabled.
I need some serious help. I downloaded and purchased spyhunter, but that didn't do much, in fact I think it made things more difficult because it keeps asking me if I want to allow or not allow registry changes, which I really don't know the answer to. I also downloaded and purchased registry medic. However, I can't do anything with it until it is registered and ironically, it won't let me register it with the code I was given. I have Mcafee installed and fully updated, but that didn't catch anything...of course.
HELP HELP HELP...please HELP!!!!
