Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving...
My problem started Thanksgiving night, after my wife was looking for a "desktop" application to put on the desktop. Well, what she ended up downloading was the nasty rogue Antivirus System Pro. I previously was able to fight off this Malware a few months back, but this time things were slightly different. As before, I ran Super Anti Spyware, and then followed it up by running Malware bytes and was succesful in killing the annoying attack. I now have residual headaches I'm unable to dislodge from my system. For one, I'm running Symantec Endpoint protection V11(definitions as of 27 November 09) but file auto protect now fails to load.
Symantec's site says to use their intelligent downloader to attemp to fix the issue. I have completed this step, restarted the system, but the File System Auto protect fails to load. I also restarted the system in safe mode, ran all three programs(SuperAnti Spyware, Malware Bytes and Symantec) no other issues were detected.
Secondary issue....I now have a google redirect bug that neither Malware bytes, Symantec, or Super anti spyware is picking up. I have also gone to trend Micro and ran a housecall, still nothing.....
Running Windows XP Home edition SP3
Internet Explorer 8
All this on an older Dell Inspiron 8600
Hope someone can help....Thank You.
