I have a Dell Computer with Windows XP Home Version. Two days ago my computer began displaying the following message when I attempted to run the virus scan: Application cannot be executed. The file "___.exe" is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus software now?". Of course when I attempt to run the anti-virus software it opens into a window from a Magic Software company attempting to sell me an anti virus program. I also get repeated pop-ups in the lower right hand corner stating: Anti Virus System Pro Alert. Infiltration Alert. Your computer is being attacked by an Internet Virus. It could be a password-stealing attack, a trojan-dropper or similiar. Details: Attack from "IP address", port XXXX, Attacked Port: XXXX, Threat: XXXX Do you want to block this attack?"
I am running McAfee Anti-virus and I cannot initialize it. I was able to Google the error and attempted to download and initialize Combofix, but it would not start giving me the same error. Any suggestions?
