as you can tell by the name, I am relatively new (mostly to this forum).
Anyways, I have a virus ( i believe it is the trojan variety ) and its been a pain to remove.
I'm not exactly sure what to do now, and decided to post here and see if anyone can help.
So I guess I'll explain what this virus is doing...
1. It changes my background to this weird Ad-like message:
WARNING!! your computer may...blah blah...
and it doesn't allow me to change the background too...
2. It disables my Task manager, so i can't end anything suspicious...
3. It creates some new icon (near the clock, bottom right) that tells me to install some virus scanner
-i know its fake, but clicked it and it pops an website for me (disabled internet btw)
and after trying to clean/scan/reboot endlessly, the problem still persists! What i delete/remove earlier, just comes crawling back...
I used the following to scan/clean:
-S & D
Ah dam...I read the BEFORE YOU POST thread too late...can't change the topic title.
Anyways, while scanning i noticed the following .dll that I found were harmful ( i think )
I tried to clean/remove these using HJT. but the just come back
So if anyone can help, i'll be more than appreciated.
