Hi, I just recieved a warning from my anti-virus scanner saying i have the Win32:Patched-HH trojan and also the Win32:Fasec [Trj] trojan. I've been gone a couple of days from my computer and don't know how this could have happened, but now on my internet explorer pop ups are appearing. I have tried moving it to the chest as the avast! anti-virus has recommended me to do, but it keeps appearing.

Thanks for your time.

edit: my avast now says I have Win32:Rootkit-gen [Rtk] rootkit

Use the two programs (Super Antispyware and MalwareBytes AntiMalware) to find and remove the malware. Directions for using the programs are in the links below.

thank you for your response, i've scanned my computer with the MalwareBytes program and it seems to have deleted all the trojans. So far nothing has popped up for me, so that must be a good sign. Thanks again!

You should scan again after updating. The malware often is not removed the first time you scan with the security programs as they haven't updated to the latest variants of the malware.

Read post #4 and #6 in the links below to learn how to avoid the malware in the future.

Some of your restore points are infected and need to be deleted. The way to do that is to delete all restore points and set a new one. If needed, see info in link below.

Allow Secunia online scanner to scan your computer for missing security updates for all of your programs.
