I recently obtained a nice little infection in which false Antivirus popups started and locked up my computer. I could not go to any website or run any programs.
A website would auto open wanting to sell, if I remember right, "Virus Protection Soft".
I was able to start in safe mode, use another computer to download Spybot-Search & Destroy, but it could not run without updating. I did not have internet access.
I was able to install Malwarebyte's and it removed enough of the virus to start in normal mode.
I still did not have internet access. I checked internet options and noticed Proxy server was checked. I unchecked this and had internet access again. I was then able to run Spybot-S&D and remove some more problems.
Computer seems to be running OK again.
I would like to post some logs for someone to check and make sure all is clean. I tried to run gmer, but it stops working during scan. Sometimes it crashes the computer to reboot.
Thanks in advance for any help,
