I am on my husbands laptop because on my own I get redirected everytime I try to go to any webpages . And If i type an address in the bar it will say"failed to connect cant establish a connection" But i can browse through yahoo.
When I logged onto my internet (firefox or enternet expl.)it goes to a page it says " Insecure Internet Activity.Threat of Virus Attack"
Its a " Security Center Alert" window. Then its says click here to get full real time protection
or click here to continue tp website unprotected(not recommended) anyway i Just exited the window and click the home button and it took me to my usual yahoo homepage
Then a window pops up from "security alert center" thats says" To help protect your comp, windows has blocked some features of this program" then "do you want to block this suspisious software?"Name Win32.Zafi.B
Risk level High
Well the only option it gives you is to "enable protection."

I have Malwarebytes downladed but it freezes up when I try to install.
So can anyone just get me to where I can post a HJT log onto this forum so i can get some help?

Thankyou so much in advance!!

Hello try this to run it. By the way I am deleting those extra posts to avoid confusion.

Some types of malware will disable MBAM and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it. Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.

If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files, right-click on mbam.exe and change the .exe as noted above. Then double-click on it to run.


***
Another work around is by not using the mouse to install it, Just use the arrow keys, tab, and enter keys.

Ok, I got it to install and I changed the mbam.exe to mbam.bat and it still will not run. Also When I restart my firewall is turned off. And a window pops up that says "sh.loader~ Failed to extract dump"

Hi, I moved your Log to the above link... They will have to work with you on this.

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Post in this thread when you haven't received an answer in five days.".

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
