I have Vista Home Basic on my PC and it doesn't have a 'start in safe mode' option as the older one with XP does. That probably would allow me to check out my options one at a time during the restart.
Now I can barely get into Windows Defender, Spybot, Norton AV, Task Mgr or msconfig to begin to look for anything that is being directed to AV-Force.net and calls itself Antispyware Soft the AV program that they are trying to sell from a reported unsafe website.
As the PC goes through start up, it quickly affects and stops almost all programs that try to run saying that they are infected. I cannot even see how they passed the spyware, AV program and other steps to even get the program going on the PC so rapidly in the first place.
I just tried to download the defogger program and it downloaded to the PC, but when going to run it -- it says it is infected and stops it just as I am about to hit the disable button.
I could use any help in getting this cleaned out -I've been trying differentthing for almost 6 hours between last night and mid-morning to day. Theyn I found this web-site by Googling Ad-Force Infected PC.
If you have any ideas, please post them here, but if you could also send me an e-mail to pcvulkan at yahoo c com - I would probably get that faster.
I am just heading out to get something to eat and get some groceries, but will leave the browser up and on the site. Please contact me if you need any other information.
