Computer has been overtaken with popups, fake virus programs, spyware, and more. Over the past 3 weeks have downloaded (and paid for) 2 different spyware programs (intelinet and xoftspy). Still overrun - and for the past 3 days none of my security programs would work (froze midstream) - even the online trend scan through my isp.
today I restored my computer to 6 weeks ago
updated my 'old' virus program (avg and windows defender)
ran each program (seperate times) and found (and deleted/cleaned) the following: tmp3.tmp, tmp4.tmp, tmp7.tmp, adware_faxterxp, adware_virtumundo, adw_mywebsearch, troj_bhos1, troj_java.at
Downloaded the java JRE6 update 6 - deleted my old java, and then installed the new
downloaded & installed trend micro hijack this
ran 'disk cleanup' and deleted all cookies & temp folders/files
ran onine trend scan through isp - clean
ran avg security program - clean
ran windows defender - clean
ran trend micro hijack this...no idea what it means, but read a post about what to do BEFORE submitting a file - am terrified to follow the steps I saw listed...more programs? how many does it take? And it looked like the post I was reading might be outdated. With the above information, could someone please tell me what to do?
Thanks - Lori
