I've been having problems with my PC lately(i.e. multiple crashes freezing, program disabling,etc). I have f-secure(used to think it was good) about a month ago I ran a complete scan and came up with 1 spyware and 1 trojan. F-secure could do nothing with either. Tried a suggestion from a friend called Cureit! by Dr.Web. I ran the program it(ostensibly) not only got rid of the 2 but also(again ostensibly) 32 others f-secure didn't even find. Things were fine for a week or so. Then f secure picked up a hacktool reboot in my restore volume. couldn't delete so renamed to what name I don't know(wish I did),and again today. Also keeps disabling portions of f-secure. Also disabled Superantispyware.
Tried Cureit again...nothing,no detection. Then my Mozilla/Firefox stopped working completely. did system restore,prblem solved(for a minute). Now it happened again today. Being the newb I am I di another restore. worked one time then Mo/Fire shut down again and I have to use regular explorer to access net. Did full scan with f-secure,picked up a MyWebSearch Adtool Deleted. Now I am at the RiskTool.Win32.Reboot.f(.fprobably the new name lol). I know what will happen if I try to delete this risktool. It will fail and rename and nothing will be solved.Also after renaming (again) I turned off system restore and back on againand created new restore point. Can anyone give solid suggestions .This is becoming very frustrating(considering complete change to Nix flavor).Anyway thanks in advance. doc_up72
