I had Internet Security 2010 a week ago, but due to Grinler's rkill, (which I found through Googling, I didn't know about this forum), plus a Trend Micro online scan, I seemed to get rid of most of it, and the computer returned to more or less normal, save for one warning sign which popped up on booting.
Then a few days later it returned with a vengeance. It shut down my wireless network, preventing me from getting on the internet, (a few applications of rkill immediately upon the desktop appearing allows me to connect to the internet). I keep the setup file for Malware Bytes on my hard drive, but immediately upon downloading the updates the program is shut down. I downloaded killbox and that gets shut down, even when I try to use if from a floppy. I tried downloading HiJack This ver 2.02 and getting rid of files which Google says act like trojans but they keep coming back.
I am going to post a HiJack This log in the appropriate section, I hope I am following the rules of the forum by doing so, and giving the link.
A) I had no antivirus on the computer for a long time. I have just purchases Norton 360 ver 3.0 but thought it would be a good idea to get rid of the virus before installing.
Although there are some things on this computer I would not mind keeping, when push comes to shove nothing on here is completely irreplaceable. So if this is going to be a very long and involved process, I can reformat and start over if that is the best way to go.
