I have a Dell running Windows XP SP2. I got infected by going through some facebook link to watch a video. When I plug my computer into the network and try to open IE it just hangs. If I try Firefox, it doesn't even open. I then have to unplug and reboot. I get the popup message saying my computer my be infected my a malicious virus, etc. I ran the free AVG and it found 8 threats and did its thing with them. I then ran Webroot Antivirus and AntiSpyware and it has found 10 threats (6 are just cookies). Problem is that I do not have a subscritpion yet so can't clean up the mess with Webroot and I can't connect to the internet as stated above. I have searched various forums looking for what files should be removed from the registry or via explorer. I did find the boliva28.exe and removed that. Although all the other DLLs related to issues below I could not find. I did read that these file names get changed frequently.
I have downloaded some other tools on my laptop and transferred them to my desktop but then they say I need to update the db so I have to connect to the internet, which I can't.
List of my threats:
rogue security products
atlas dmt cookie
Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
