Hi all! I am new to this. So I installed the AVG Free virus scan yesterday and the scan picked up 3 possible Trojans. I put those in the vault since the scanner can't delete them when I tried . Today I turned on my computer and windows check disk suddenly popped up in the loading screen, so I thought it be a good idea to let it check the drive. After it finish I logged into my windows account and about 20 notepad files popped up with a bunch of weird symbols in them and some words which one of them is "this program cannot be open in dos mode". I notice all the icon in my tray was gone except for the volume and every program I tried to open ends up opening a notepad with the same weird symbols. The only thing i can open was IE (I can't even open the stuff in Control Panel). I tried Kaspersky but the notepad popped up again and my java app didn't load. I tried running HJT and the notepad appear again refusing to open any .exe file (.dll file was out of the question too). I tried to uninstall the AVG but got the "access denied" msg, I also can't end the process for AVG in the task mgr. Anyone know whats going on? is this a virus? or did I accidently delete something that I shouldn't? thanks!!!
