I got a fairly nasty trojan last night. I was on Mininova.com looking for a torrent and Avast alerted me that it had found something(rootkit) i think. When I tried to follow the recomended action, it shut down Avast and contimues to do so everytime I try to restart it and the computer. A little red circle with an "x" going through it originally popped up at the bottom right of my screen. It is gone now but every anti spyware and other helpful programs start but get shut down everytime I try to run any of them...SUPERAnti-virus, Hijackthis, Avast, Malwarebytes....Its crazy........It keeps trying to auto install AntiSpy Protector 2009....I keep clicking the close button before it can install......Any help would be great!!
After reading a post by admin(Grinler) in the latest news section.... I figure I have AntiSpy Protector 2009 + Rootkit....
This is a laptop running XP Professional
