Ok..so yesterday i was starting a project when all of a sudden some "windows cop total security" thing started popping up. It said it was "scanning" and then it started metioning some "suspicious file" it started offering me its "anti virus"program and asked to press "yes,purchase" or no,keep scanning" or something then after that another little window popped up saying"yes, puschase" or "no keep browsing unprotected" so i kept pressing no and all of a sudden my computer restarted and started scanning itself
when i finally got to my account i noticed some programs were blocked (EVEN MY ANTI-VIRUS PROGRAM) it doesnt let me use it and the window that pops up when i click on a blocked program says something like this.."windows cannot access the specified device,path, or file.You may not have the appropriate permission to access the item"
please,please someone help me

Welcome to BC :thumbsup:

Please perform a scan with Eset Onlinescan (NOD32).
(Requires Internet Explorer to work. If given the option, choose "Quarantine" instead of delete.)
Vista Users be sure to run Internet Explorer as Administrator. To do this, right-click on the IE icon in the Start Menu or Quick Launch Bar on the Taskbar and select "Run as Administrator" from the context menu.)
  • You will see the Terms of Use. Tick the check-box in front of YES, I accept the Terms of Use
  • Now click Start.
  • You may receive an alert on the address bar that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Insall ActiveX component.
  • A new window will appear asking "Do you want to install this software?" (OnlineScanner.cab)".
  • Answer Yes to install and download the ActiveX controls that allows the scan to run.
  • Click Start. (the Onlinescanner will now prepare itself for running on your pc)
  • To do a full-scan, check: "Remove found threats" and "Scan potentially unwanted applications"
  • Press Scan to start the online scan. (this could take some time to complete)[/color]
  • When the scan has finished, it will show a screen with two tabs "overview" and "details" and the option to get information or buy software. Just close the window.
  • Now click Start > Run... > type: C:\Program Files\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt
  • The scan results will open in Notepad.
  • Copy and paste the log results in your next reply.
Note: Some online scanners will detect existing anti-virus software and refuse to cooperate. You may have to disable the real-time protection components of your existing anti-virus and try running the scan again. If you do this, remember to turn\ them back on after you are finished.
