my computer is infected with a virus that is similar to other posts but i have tried everything to my knowledge and cant seem to remove it.
this virus identifies anti malware and antivirus programs and strips the user of the permissions to access the application. this makes it very hard to remove. most applications i can install and run once then they close immediately.
this happened with both rootrepeal and dds which is why i couldnt attach logs.
It also has hijacked my web browser and redirects me a lot to other websites when i click any link on google.
i am running a winXP Pro SP3
the only two anti virus programs that run without closing are my existing
ESET NOD32 3.0.672.0 - identified it as a Win32/TrojanDownloader.FakeAlert.AHT trojan
IObit Security 360 free license. - identified a Trojan.Downloader
with a free scan of STOPzilla it found - Win32K.Stream trojan
i have tried running SpyHunter, HijackThis, SuperAntiSpyware Pro, and Malwarebytes Anti Malware all unsuccesfully. i also cant remove them. and cant find them on Add/Remove Programs.
I Have researched this a lot and cant figure it out.
if anyone has any comments please post a reply.
thank you all,
