I'm new to Bleeping Computer. Now I want you guys to help me solve the malware/virus problem with my notebook computer.
This afternoon, I unfortunately installed a crack that goes with a FontLab 5.0.4 build version. Then Anitivirus software on the computer alerted me to a message that the crack.exe was trying create C:\WINDOWS\ios.dat and C:\WINDOWS\system32\p.ico. But badly, I gave the two programs a go ahead and it added a Browser Helper Object to Firefox and IE 7 as I didn't realize both of the two are malicious processes. But later I terminated crack.exe to prevent it from create more processes. But when I tried to click My compter desktop icon, but it didn't open and it helped open Firefox instead with Google as default starting page AND with Win32.DNSChanger. And I can not open the registry anymore. Till now, I knew my computer was infected with a virus. I search over the web, but found no effective solutions to this virus.
I have no HJT installed on my computer. So I was unable to upload a HJT log here. Sorry about the lengthy words. I still hope one of you can help me with this virus (I REALLY balk at an OS reinstallation). Thanks in advance.
