Okay, so I'm not too good with computers, but I also don't have a lot of money to spend taking it to get it fixed.
I was on the internet, doing my thing, and a warning pops up saying the site I was trying to visit was a "Reported Attack Site."
I ignored the warning.
It tried to download things (which I THOUGHT I stopped it from doing) and now there's a red circle with an X in it in my taskbar, occasionally I get a popup telling me that my computer is infected, and the background of my computer changed from a picture of my boyfriend to an unsightly green screen with a black box in the middle that says "YOUR SYSTEM IS INFECTED!"

I ran an avast! Scan on my computer, and although it found a few virus/malware/creepy stuff, nothing is making that green screen go away and my computer is being very difficult.

I don't even know where to begin!

Thank you in advance =]

well, ive had more luck with AVG but to be honest starcraft manager, 2 things. First, theres no such thing as an anti-virus that catches everything, which is why i have 3 on my computer. and my second point ties to the first in that he already tried avast and it didnt solve it, so by running a couple other programs they may catch what avast did not.

I have the same thing on my computer.

I've spent 3 1/2 hrs scanning. I've used malwarebytes, Spybot n Avira antivirus.

My computer still has this problem.

It started from an email my wife opened, which claimed to be from UPS.

which is why i have 3 on my computer


Sounds impressive, but that can be quite harmful. I would really only recommend one real-time monitoring antivirus program at a time, since running more than one real-time antivirus program can cause conflicts.

Then again, you have 250x more posts than I.
