This happened to me about a week ago to my computer(which i think might be fine now,i have no idea)
First i downloaded rainbow six vegas nocd from gamecopyworld which removes activation,then it happened
a popup saying "<my real name how the bleep do they know it>" Dangerous Viruses Detected!Files in WINDOWS.0(thats my real windows folder how do they know that either) Damaged!Your computer is at risk
Click OK to download antivirus software to fix these problems!"
and also when i tryed to download anything from IE it had something like File Not Accesible in popup form
There were about atleast 1 of these popups every 2 pages
i had to rely on my PSP to download spybot and adaware 2008 to fix it
But then when i went to my dock to play some rainbow six lockdown it happened again..
so i tryed to fix it again with spybot but then spybot showed more spyware adware PUPS and trojans than the other scan
Everything started with AVG detecting a Win32/Huer which i found out means hueristic which means its just a warning threatening enough for AVG just to detect it
it was found in various registry keys
Then i found that it was infected explorer.exe (my start bar)
which lead me to reinstall XP keeping all of my games (after unistalling lockdown) (and because i have like 60 games
Which i think fix it
about 5 days later i talked about it to one of my steam friend it he said it could be an illegal fraud thing called SmitFraud and that he got it too.
So i just wanted to find out if i had it still...
IT also says at boot which system i want to boot
There are 2 windows xp's in the list
i think the one at the top is fine
and the bottom has the virus still
And also just a question:how do i get rid of the updates installed restarting in 4 minutes popup FOREVER (keeps minimizing my team fortress 2)
anyways thank you for reading this and i hope some of you can help me figure out if i still have it or not
and what this 2 windows Xp thing is all about..
My friend did say the day he installed Xp again his computer was slow..
AVG Adaware Spybot or anything else i had didnt detect SmitFraud so i guess i dont have it
but i just want to be sure..
