Hi All,

Recently I have been getting re-directs to winpc defender.

I tried to run Malwarebytes which I had installed previously, however the program wonít launch. mbam.exe does however appear on the task-list.

I downloaded superantispyware and I was unable to launch the setup.exe file.

I tried re-starting the pc in safemode and it crashed while loading (I tried this a couple of times).

My system restore appears to be turned off and when I go to turn it on, once I restart its turned off again.

I thought to back-up my files on DVD, only to get a pop-up to say that I didnít have Nero admin burn rights (never happened before). I installed Nero burn rights and gave the users the appropriate rights, however the message continues to pop up.

I installed other burning software, however my dvd drive is not recognised by the software. I can only burn to an image file

The text on Google appears to be in a larger font than normal.

Attached is the DDS log is per the instructions.

I look forward to any assistance

I managed to launch malwarebytes and install superantispyware by renaming to .exe files. Once launched- I updated the definitions and it appears that the viruses were removed (hopefully).
