Came back from the Holidays to an infected computer, with thanks to my 13, 15, 16 and 19 year old cousins who used my school computer instead of my desktop! What they got on my computer, I have no idea, except that I get re-directed to "gimmebargains.com" or it will re-direct TO that website, and to another one (and the second link is usually the one that changes up every time.) The eldest of my cousins, while I was away, attempted to fix my computer prior to me coming back.
Now I have all of these programs, weird re-directions, and a slowing computer.
Here are the programs or files that he (or the virus/malware or whatever) tried to use, I can't differ whether they're viruses or anti-malware programs:
and the weird .exe's on my desktop and weird files I have not seen before:
-bspsvt2z.exe and has a .exe box, except it says GMER in it?
Weird new folders:
-ComboFix (folder that's located in C:)
-Qoobox (located on C:)
-MarkAny (Program Files)
-MyFreeCodec (Program Files)
-Trillian (Program Files)
And that's all I've come across - I've called and ask if he's posted on these websites or another but he said he read it off of another blog and tried it.
Once again, thank you for any of your help that you can help me out with and hopefully I can get out of this mess.
Happy New Years.
