My pc was infected yesterday with brastk.exe, knocked out my AVG 7.5, my mcafee firewall and spybot. I have managed to get rid of the pesky thing but had to reinstall AVG (now using version 8) and Mcafee as I couldnt get them started up. I havent been able to update my AVG, it says the connection failed, to check that I am connected and something about my connection parameters. This has been happening all day, I have uninstalled and reinstalled it to make sure there wasnt a problem with installaion but still no joy...and while searching for an answer I hit a web page that tried to install XP antispyware (related to braskt I think) So I really need to be able to update ASAP.
Desktop pc, XP home with sp2, AOheL isp
Any suggestions greatly appreciated
Just found out I can't update spybot either, going to try a fresh install but I have a feeling i'll be facing same problem
