Hello everyone :flowers:
Umm a few days ago, Youtube was going slow for me so I took to just browsing the web playing stupid flash games, etc. I came across I site that I didn't think was bad, but a message popped up stating that I had to download a flash player. It was early in the morning and I was so stupid I downloaded it OMG!!!
I realized that this was some sort of virus when all the ads on the internet were replaced with Vimax ads (to enlarge a certain body part); also, when I went on Google and searched for something I was always redirected upon clicking a link.
I've been blocked from System Restore, the Malware Bytes website, and various AV updates.
I have tried EVERYTHING from asking people for help on Yahoo Answers, to asking questions at some other forums which didn't really help at all, my mom even paid $69 for some guy from Bombay to get into our computer to fix it which btw DID NOT WORK!! :thumbsup:
Someone who has been trying to help me through IM told me I have a trojan DNS.changer or something like that.
I've looked on these forums and you guys seem to have a few cases of this kind of stuff so can you pleeease help me :trumpet:
I start homeschooling next week which is based online and i will REALLY be needing use of this computer, tyvm :inlove:
