Hello all. It seems after various computer scanning's I have had nothing show up. I know I have a virus because while screwing with some of my software I was forced to turn my firewall and other securities off. Of course I forgot to turn all of these things back on and after downloading movies, torrents, and everything I shouldn't be doing unprotected it seems I stumbled across a virus which will freeze my computer up for a millisecond. But, it will do this every second or so (it's not really a completer pattern, like a clock, but just every second or so) and it does this to EVERYTHING. Internet, firefox, windows movie player, and I can even hear my sound (with headphones on) click off at the same time my mouse stops moving. Having no clue how this program works or what I should scan, and seeing as I'm fourteen years old with little computer experience, I would very much appreciate it if I could have some help with this issue. Ass well as information as to if this could potentially harm my computer permanently.

Thanks for the help. The little experience I have with any of this makes my face do this ---> :thumbsup:

BTW I have windows vista. And hyjackthis version 2.0.0 beta.

Hiya :thumbsup: What aintvirus program do you have and one assumes you have turned it back on , fully updated it and run a full deep scan with it ?Also your other protection programs?

You could try a scan with malawarebytes which is compatible with Vista
Please download
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your Desktop.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.

  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.

    Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.

  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that scan report for examination and exit MBAM.

Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately.

Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes, they may alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please permit the program to allow the changes.
