Pop up of "Personal Antivirus" came on computer. I did NOT click the "remove threats" thinking that this was a virus. In a google lookup I did find that this was a virus. So I am not sure that the computer is actually infected. My husband and I share the computer and the "Personal Antivirus" had a icon on his desktop not on mine where it popped up today. I was unable to locate the file in the control panel so I am not sure that it is installed. However, I did place it in the recycle bin and then deleted that. But I am sure that doesn't do anything. Continue to receive pop ups in the lower right corner of screen......the one that is there now states "Bloodhound.PDF.8 is a heuristic detection for potentially malicious PDF files....blah blah blah...all this is under the "Personal Antivirus" little symbol. I ran a McAfee scan and it came up with nothing.

Please advise.
Thanks you.

Hello chicksickofvirus,

I need for you to go offline completely and disable ALL your protective programs after you download ComboFix, but before you run it. Sometimes those programs interfere with it, and we don't want that! :thumbup2:

If McAfee still gives you problems then you may have to temporarily uninstall it.

This tool is not a toy. If used the wrong way you could trash your computer. Please use only under direction of a Helper. If you decide to do so anyway, please do not blame me or ComboFix.

1. Download this file - combofix.exe
http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe
http://www.forospyware.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe
http://subs.geekstogo.com/ComboFix.exe
2. Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
3. When finished, it will produce a log for you. Post that log in your next reply please, along with a new HijackThis log.

Note:
Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall.

Please do this:
1. Download HijackThis™ here:
http://www.trendsecure.com/portal/en-US/th.../hijackthis.php

2. Click 'Do a System Scan and Save log'.
The HJT log will open in notepad.

Thanks,
tea
