Hello,

Think I am in trouble. I was infected with Malware that was a fake anti virus software. This has now gone following the running of various removal tools (Spybot S&D to name but 1). The problem now is that my Antivirus software will not run (McAfee). I am also stopped from downloading from a number of website (McAfee included). I was attempting to follow the advice on this site to create DDS and GMER logs but clicking on the links in the instructions did nothing.

I hope some one can help point me in the right direction to remove whatever it is that I have on my PC - it is an Acer 5735Z running Vista.

Thanks,
Brian
