I read about another person that had this same type of issue, but I can use some help with this whole process. First off, I am using Vista Business edition. I got some sort of virus on Facebook when asked to download a file to be able to view a friend's video. Stupid me for clicking the link. Anyways, after that, I get a IE popup that comes up every few minutes from various websites.
I had Avast Pro, not sure exact version. It was out of date so I uninstalled it and tried to download the Free AVG version. Downloaded it and it found nothing, but the virus definitions weren't up to date. Tried to update and I was getting an error message with something to the effect that the file couldn't be found. I then tried to update my Spybot, same thing. This message says Error retrieving update info file!
Another part of the problem is when I try to go to certain websites, I get redirected elsewhere. Here's an example. I google search antivirus. I click on the link that shows me it will route me to www.pctools.com, third option down from the top. When I click the link, it redirects me to : hxxp://www.findstuff.com/home/search/?uvx=...GnO0vhY2W5lAA** This happens with most sites I try to search.
Ok, so I hope this is enough detail, anything else you need to know, let me know. The other person that had this issue had pasted something from a Hijackthis log, which I would like assistance on obtaining myself so I can show you what's going on.
Thanks in advance!
