Downloaded torrent on Sept 10th, think there was a virus of some sort in it.
Virus alert! appeared in bottom right of toolbar by clock (disappears if clock is hidden). Screen also went red with a skull and crossbones image I think and the message 'your privacy is in danger.' Screen then went blue, icons missing.
I restarted computer, screen now normal but my computer/my documents/control panel and all programs button missing from start menu. Tried to access them by going through connect to button in start menu, show all connections and then clicking on other places on left panel. I can access control panel and my documents from here, but my computer file only shows my documents.
A small black screen with white writing pops up for a few seconds on start up called system 32 I think.
I have installed spy bot search and destroy, ad-aware, mcafee stinger but although they deleted malware, the problem has not been fixed. The only thing that has happened is the all programs button on start menu has reappeared as normal.
Sorry if my explanation is a bit confusing, I am new to this and I just wanted to try and explain as much of the problem as possible!
I have also posted on another website but have yet to receive help from them.
