Not sure how I picked this up, but was suddenly stricken with the "Total Security" malware.
I was not able to open any programs with my computer, except internet explorer, and that would only let me go to the one site telling me to pay for Total Security to get the virus off my computer
So I used a friend's computer, found this site, and downloaded the two parts to the fix, and went home to try it...but I wasn't even able to run the procexp/iexplore because the virus kept shutting it down.
I called my father's computer guy, who told me to run windows in safe mode, and then run the malware remover program. I did that, and it found a bunch of infected files (8 I think?) and I removed them, restarted the computer, and thought I was home free... but while I can connect to most websites, I am not able to connect to google.com, live.com, bing.com or pretty much any search engine. It says that it can't connect to the internet.
I have tried running the procexp, since I didn't do that in my "fix", but don't see the tsc.exe or similar program.
Can anybody help? My husband is due home from work in 2 days, and I'm hoping I don't have to tell him what happened to the computer.
Thanks in advance,
