I have seen a number of people who have had the same issue as me, yet the "solution" appears to be unique to each computer user, which is why I am posting a new topic here.
Recently I clicked a link to a fairly trusted site, but it hung, so I closed the browser. A few seconds later, I received the fake Windows Security alert popup informing me that my firewall had detected malicious software on my computer called "trojan-keylogger.win32.fung." The Yes and No buttons were grayed out, so I just closed the popup. A few minutes later, when it popped up again, for some retarded reason I chose to enable my protection. This, of course, took me to the website for the Antivirus 2008/2009. As soon as I saw it taking me to a website, I closed the browser. I'm afraid, however, the stuff ended up on my system.
After running a variety of spyware and virus scanners (Panda scan, d-Aware 2008, SmitFraudFix, Malware-bytes, etc.), both in safe and normal mode, I am still receiving the pop-up. I think I've managed to remove the virus, but the popup is still annoying as anything. I'd also like to ensure that I am free from the virus and as long as I get the pop-up, I can't feel that certain.
I've run the steps requested in one of the topics on this forum, and since none of those fixed the problem, I'm now asking here for help.
Is there anyone willing to help me through this problem via hijackthis logs, etc?
