Last night, my McAfee security alerted me to a trojan/rootkit attempting to overtake my laptop. I followed the prompts as they seemed legit from McAfee, My laptop then became totally overtaken by this virus, it stopped my admin rights, stopped me from accessing my security options, control panels, fire wall etc and took over entirely.
After several attempts of scans etc from my McAfee anti-virus - it was telling me everything was fine and no virus found. Yet my google chrome and internet explorer would not open, then when it did, it was being overtaken from someone else trying to make me log into my hotmail account etc.
I gathered my McAfee security was no longer responsive and had been attacked also, and at times I could not even properly access it from the task bar or bottom menus. After getting my computer into safte mode, I deleted McAfee - it was only a free trial, and then searched and found this site on another laptop showing help via Combo Fix. I first loaded my usb key with Malwarebytes and Combo Fix, I used safe mode and was able to get Malwarebytes running and detecting/deleting, I then used Combofix in safe mode to then deal with the rest.
It seems to have helped alot, as i can now access my main files again to do with security etc, the only thing is i still cant or it wont allow some admin rights still, and i had to run combo fix again as the trojan re-fixed itself and installed porn icons onto my desktop. after re-running combo fix again it deleted all the malicious files again etc and i am kind of too worried to go back onto the net again as it still might need fixing.
The combofix has given me a log which I have saved on my usb key. I would like to wait for someone available to help me and I will post my log from combo fix on here so you can see if my computer needs any further cleaning.
I look forward to a reply. thank you in advance
