This is my first time on here so I'm not sure at all but I'm a child I don't know hardly anything about computers and I have broken mine so I will need all your help.
I foolishly clicked on a message with a link which I think contained malware or something, it was from a friend so I thought it as ok.
Then i realised it was something terrible and my mozzilla stopped working due to 'problems with proxy settings'.
I went on window help and it told me to download some antivirus software, which I did not reading anything just clicking like the idiot I am.
I now have some 'antivirus internet software' which I cannot delete of my computer 'Internet antivirus Pro' is the programs name.
Realising that was a load of bull i remembered hijackthis and I did the scan and I wanted some-one to overlook things like it suggested and it lead me to this site and most importantly you guys.
I've read some topics mostly the 'How did I get infected' and realised I was infected like the dolt that I am.
Then there was a link to 'Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Hijackthis and other Malware Removal Tools, Instructions for receiving help in cleaning your computer'
Now on Grinler it suggested I back up my stuff, it's was already backed up so I am fine.
Then Grinler said to use dds, I downloaded it but when the black box thingy came up it said :-This tool does not support your poerating system Press any key to Continue.
I pressed any key and it went off so now I'm stuck.
I probably have malware cookies, trojans the whole lot on my computer. I know now that I am an idiot.
Please would some-one help me.
I'm using Vista and on a wired interet connection if that makes a difference.
