first of all... Im on my laptop... so shush bout me risking infecting the site :thumbsup:

ok this is th 3rd time this happens to me (no not cuz I download 2much porn lol) I got one of thoes wierdo viruses that acts like an antivirus.

ok here's the thing WHEN I get it... it pops up saying Anti-Virus Live...... ad starts a "scan" with in one second it starts saying it found viruses (by this time Im at the close X)

I have tried using Avast to delete them but because I cant open things I can only run an Avast scan (since its always on) and Avast never finds anything, if I could I would run another scan w/ AVG but when it opens I get a pop-up saying its infected and the virus closes it.... ontop of that it opens rgrams that are like E.exe and some other one w/ a wierd name to take up as much of my PCs resources as possible. :flowers:

ok so here's my question.... is there any way to delete this sorta virus without doing a "revert to previous date" or full systems restore? AND is there any free Anti-virus out there that works better then avg or Avast (that isn't s dangerous as hijakthis)

Im doing a revert to earlier date on my desktop as I type this, so don't feel rushed, I just want this info for the next time I get one of those lame viruses....hopefully though, I wont -.-"

btw I know this is off topic but... combofix.... hijack this..... whats the dif? O_o

Hi blader.

Yes there is, here it is. In my opinion is better than Avast! free.
If it was combofix hijack your machine, you just have to look to the top of the topic and do what's in the link.
