My computer is infected by pav. As soon as I turn my pc on the pav scan window pops up along with various "windows" type messages about infections my computer has etc. When I open up the internet my home page comes up for about 4 seconds, then it's taken over by the brown pav screen. Anytime I type in a URL pav takes over. I installed and ran combofix and from what I can understand, it's log says it deleted a personal antivirus.lnk. I don't seem to be getting those brown windows that take over every page now, but it still brings up the scan window where it prompts you to scan. this screen "critical system warning" messages won't go away. Obviously my machine is still infected. I have included the logs as instructed in the preparation guide. The Combofix log is available should it be needed. I hope someone can assist. Than you.
