Since the 21th December I started to be unable to use my computer properly. Each time I would type something on yahoo, it would take more time than usual and when I want to click on some result, instead of taking me to the page that is displayed I would be taken to some random spam site such as porntube.
Also aside from BitDefender and AVG Anti-Spyware, I am unable to use now Spybot, Malewarebytes and SUPERAntispyware, they just would either crash (SUPERAntispyware) or not boot at all (Spybot and Malewarebytes).
Since BitDefender still worked, I ran a scan and found the following viruses:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ActiveScan\pskavs.dll Trojan.Generic.1020738 Deleted
C:\Documents and Settings\XXX\Local Settings\Temp\wJQs.exe Trojan.Retapu.D Deleted
AVG Anti-Spyware, hasn't been updated since June 2008 and I can't seem to be able to update it since it says "can't connect to server, same goes for the BitDefender. I think the reason for that is, when I tried to run Panda Active Scan Pro, BitDefender asked me if I would allow or block regsrv32, I used the option block whitout knowing it was not a virus. Now I am seem tp be unable to update any of my anti-virus...
Still, I ran 2 scans with BitDefender, the full system scan found 3 viruses listed earlier which I have gotten rid of as I said before and then I ran a Deep System scan and it only found 1 cookie called "Overture" or "Ouverture" and it deleted it.
After that, I ran a scan with AVG Anti-Spyware, it said it found 5 sources which showed that 3 cookies where dangerous, so I deleted them. After that I ran a scan for the registry and it found Adware.SearchIT, so I put it in quarantine.
But it still didn't fix the problem as it should be noted also it should be not that now I can't access:
bleepingcomputer, microsoft websiteand bitdefender website.
I also have some trouble downloading stuff such as ComboFix, though I found a link in another topic that worked. But even though i put ComboFix on my desktop, exited internet explorer pages and Bitdefender, it didn't work.
Also, as I said I can not connect to bleepingcomputer, microsoft and bitdefender website whitout using a web proxy, as a matter of fact I am using one right now. Which seems the only way I can actually access the page, otherwise I get a blank page. Also, when I don't use a proxy search engines, such as yahoo, google are completly messed up as I said earlier.
What should I do?
