So like everone else on here I am infected with something...Ick! It happened about 3-4 months ago as a google re-direct, I just lived with it and delt with the clicking back and foward in order to get to my link. It was more of an annoyance than anything. But now within the last week or two I have had massive troubble installing programs and my computer has these little shields on the right hand corner of alot of the icons it didnt have before, almost as if im not the admin user. I have now just recentlly run into a problem where when I try to run a program it gives me a "Windows cannot access the specified device,path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."
I have run AVG and Malware bytes scans and Malware bytes found "spyware.zbot and rootkit.agent" but removing those has not fixed the problem. I have read a lot of the tuts here and am going to run a super anti spyware sweep after my post. I have als tried running a combofix to see what happens and I get a weird error at the begining of the scan saying that "*" is not a propper command" and then it gets to part 3 of the scan and I get a blue screen of death. I have also tried running the scan in safe mode with the same results.
I am running Win7
Please if anyone can point me in the right direction it would be awesome!
