Hello,

I have been readin' alot on this site, tryin' to find something with my exact problem. Yesterday my desktop got a bogus pop up displayin' the windows logo, sayin' virus found. Thinkin' it was my firewall I click. Bad idea, I know. The bogus scanner started and "infection found" pop ups all ova the place. Closin' anything out just redirects to a Buy their product page. At first I tried Task Manager, which a popup states it has been "disabled by adm." At that time i was still able to access add/remove prog. Nothin' showed up to remove or i didnt know what to look for. Next, I was able to close everything out but the scannin' window and then shut down. Restarted in safe mode with Networkin' and signed in. After start completed their scanner began with no desktop icons or task bar. I did a hard shutdown. And here i am on a friends laptop. The Comp. runs Windows home edition. I'm not worried about what is lost or what i'll have to reinstall, just want to beat this! Please help if you can or direct me to an earlier post that you might know of with this issue.

Thanks for your time,
Southiekid27

Hello :thumbsup:
I don't know which specific infection (bogus antivirus) that you have.
The first link below has "removal guide tutorials" for MANY DIFFERENT infections.

Glad to hear your computer is better :thumbsup:

You may want to update your antivirus program and your malware removal programs
(whether it was Malwarebytes' and/or SUPERAntiSpyware, etc)
and scan again to make sure the scan results come up "clean" (zero infections found).

You could post your Malwarebytes' logs, and your SUPERAntiSpyware logs (copy/paste the ENTIRE CONTENTS of all logs into your next reply) for an OFFICIAL STAFF MEMBER to look at, to make sure you are free of infection.
(only trained members of the following groups: Malware Response Team, Malware Study Hall Senior, Moderators or Administrators are allowed to help people with logs. )
