My dad has the totalsecure 2009 virus affecting his pc (vista). After researching what it is and does it seems he has a worse "version" of it than any other accounts i've read. It will let him browse 2 or 3 (if hes lucky) web pages before a pop up box tells him hes got a virus and surprise surprise only "totalsecure2009" will get rid of it. This is always follwed by IE being shut down.
I'm fairly good with pc's but i'm struggling with this. I've ran spybot and avast, but to no avail. I've looked at removing it manually, but cannot find any of the 3 exe files which most sites tell you to find in program files and can't find any of the dll files in the reg. Also simply doing a search for "totalsecure2009" doesn't throw up any results.
I can't download Malewarebytes of smitfraud because...you guessed it, IE shuts down before i can download the software. (i've shall try and put these anti spyware exe' s on a memory stick and see if i can run it from there).
Apart from that any help will be greatly appriciated, as its starting to really do my head in.
Thanks for reading.
