got a notice on my desktop (PC- windows xp) saying im infected with win32.zafi.b and i need to buy a program to remove it. I could not go on line after that so i went into safe mode.
I ran AVG and spybot but they did not find anything but malwarebytes found -trojan.fakealert. Is this the same as win 32.zafi.b or do i need to keep looking ?THanks in advance for any help
Pasting in additional information from a duplicate post. ~ OB
When I restarted computer the desktop was now showing HP ( i have a HP PC) and my other two user names that I use are now gone. My printer info is also gone. We loaded AVG and that found -Trojanhorse generic 12.bujr and adware generic 2 tqi and fake-antiplywarebld
. Malwarebytes anti-malware ran for almost 7 hours and found trojan.fake alert
End of added material. ~ OB
Thanks Bruce S.
