I'm new to this site so please go easy on me
I think that i have been infected with that rootkit that is described on the first page:
'When AntiSpy Protector 2009 is installed on your computer it looks like every other rogue. It shows fake security alerts, displays fake scan alerts, and is a general nuisance. It is only when you try to remove this malware that you notice that your programs no longer work. While testing this program, I noticed that any program I ran to remove this malware was terminated, and then when I tried to run it again, I was told I did not have permission'
I do not have AntiSpy Protector installed but i am getting fake security alerts and when i try to run a program to remove it the program is terminated, so far i have tried:
ccleaner - which completed
and these that get terminated:
I am running IE7 but i am unable to connect to any website. i used to get a message in the browser (something like page unavailable) but i cannot recreate it now, IE just terminates when after i have typed in the url and pressed enter. I also occasionally get an error messages when i try to run a program (like IE for example) the error refers to a memory error, i have also just had another blue screen.
My computer is a Sony Vaio VGN-SZ61WN running Vista Business SP2. This started the other night, i had a message appear that said i was infected, i got a blue screen and as the laptop rebooted it installed SP2.
I am running Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 for Windows Workstations.
If you need anymore information i will do my best to get it for you. please help
