My personal computer got a message from F-Secure (which I was using at that time) saying that malicious code found in file C:\Users\...temp... Infection- Js.luckysploit.q- Action taken- The file was deleted. I was actually reading a forum board at the time of the pop-up.
Then a little later while I was on the same forum site, I got another pop-up. I THOUGHT the pop-up was from windows defender or my computer saying that it found more viruses and needed to do a scan, which I allowed it. That's when I realized it was from something else, not windows and not f-secure. It looked as though the scan actually was doing an install. But I do not know??
Now the real problems began after this. My F-Secure started saying it had to update but after i did, i couldn't log online at all. It completely blocked my ability to connect to the internet. I ended up having to remove the F-Secure. Even the tech support couldn't help find out why I couldn't connect. F-Secure was provided by my isp.
I then downloaded and ran Avast but it took about 15-18 hours to do a scan, malwarebytes will take 12-13 hours to scan. Maybe this is normal, I do not know. I can't recall any scans taking that long. Maybe I am a little paranoid since this is my personal computer. I then chose to replace Avast and Mbam with SS&D, AVG 9.0, and ZA.
It seems scans are taking abnormally long and also it seems like the new programs I downloaded aren't really working. I can never get them to show on the bar by my clock. I also rec'd a couple messages saying my back-up has failed.
Computer- is running Vista Home (32-bit) it is a quad-core AMD processor w/ 3G ram about 600G HD.
BTW, my computer was running fine before I went out of town for about a week. I found out my 14 year old nephew was coming to my house and playing games that he had downloaded on my computer. I am thinking one of the games or gaming sites he visited was infected with something.
