I believe my son visited a site that plays cartoons and played, however not saved, peer to peer files. What started next was "New Window" pop ups dispalying ads, live salespeoople..etc. This was on 12/12/-12/13. As of today, My broswers (Firefox 3.5.5/IE8) were crashing after loading the homepage and trying to go to another site. I temporarily was able to put you guys as my new homepage and navigate within the site. I followed the directions regarding the Hijackthis thread... Desribing the situation, DDS, etc. As I was uploading the "Attach" file, my network connection is now gone and nowhere to be found.....Something is spreading and I'm afraid tomorrow I won't evevn have a computer working. I'm typing this on my old mac for now. I'm utterly frustrated. everything diagnostic I ran and saved to send you is on that computer without anyway to get it to you.
I have and tried: SUPERAntispyware, CCleaner, SuperAdBlocker, nothing detected (These are all freeware versions..) CCleaner comes up with some files but at this point chokes and crashes as I try "Cleaning".
My McAfee Security Center scans and chokes @ 1% complete doing nothing for close to an hour. It says the computer is protected and even caught about 4 trojans during the 2nd day of this mess. All essential security features are "On"......I just don't know.
Anything I need to buy?
Is McAfee compromised at this point?
