I have a problem; my computer I believe is infected. Very infected. I went to a site trying to download a software. But I got an error after leaving my computer idle on that site for a few minutes. A message comes up saying I have been infected. And since then it's been hell.
Tried running McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.5.0i, and that got disabled. Now I can't even run it. I got around to re-enabling it but I can't get it to scan. I try to run it, but nothing happens.
Same thing happened to Spybot Search and Destroy. That got disabled and now won't run.
And HijackThis won't run either. When I tried to run it, it ran but then just closed..without saving a "logfile." HijackThis has now been disabled. I uninstalled it and downloaded another copy. Got an installer and just the executable but neither of them works. I can't install it. Starts off, but then disappears. So I can't install it. I run the executable but just like before, it runs, and then closes while scanning. No logfile saved.
I tried Spyware Doctor and that found quite a few infections which it fixed. Thought that was it, but I was wrong. It's like nothing was cleaned.
I'm out of options. I don't know what else to do. And reformatting is not an option. My whole work from my job is on here. I can't afford to lose anything.
