Hey, everybody! First time poster, hoping you can help.

I got a Fake Alert virus (FakeAlert-CK.dll), which immediately turned my desktop gray (no picture), created a little alert bubble on the bottom right of the screen that said that I had a virus and by clicking on it, I would be able to download software to get rid of it (I didn't click it, though). I also got pop-up windows (not internet pop ups, but Windows pop ups) saying that it "could not find Logon.exe," and "C:\windows\system32\winhelper.dll not a valid windows image."

Additionally, since I got the virus, I have not been able to connect to the internet. Firefox displays my homepage's address, but the tab reads (Untitled) and the screen is white.

It says, however, that I am connected to my wireless.

I scanned my computer using McAfee, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and Spybot Search and Destroy, and was able to remove most of it, I believe, but the internet still doesn't work, and I'm still getting the "could not find Logon.exe" popup.

Any suggestions? Please let me know if you need any other information.

Thank you. :thumbsup:

Go to Posted Image > Run..., then copy and paste this command into the open box: cmd
Click OK.
At the command prompt C:\>, copy and paste the following command and press Enter:

DIR /a/s %windir%\scecli.dll %windir%\netlogon.dll %windir%\eventlog.dll >Log.txt & START notepad Log.txt

A file called log.txt should be created on your Desktop.
Open that file and copy/paste the contents in your next reply.
