I've searched how to try to remove it but i'm not really Tech smart so i dont really understand it all but occasionally even when firefox or IE isn't open, (i could just have nothing but the desktop up and it says randomly "Congratulations, you've won".

I tried using free virus scans and all that and none have found/removed it. It's really annoying and my computer has been running deathly slow because of this virus and if anybody could help me while using simple terms i'd appreciate it alot.


Edit: and the only way to not have it say anything is to mute my sound but that doesnt help because who doesn't use sound, right? :thumbsup:

It's possible that you have an infected Master Boot Record (MBR) so lets check it to be sure.

Please download MBRCheck.exe by a_d_13 from one of the links provided below and save it to your desktop.Link 1
Link 2
Link 3
  • Double-click on MBRCheck.exe to run it. Vista/Windows 7 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • It will open a black screen with some data on it...please do not fix anything (if it gives you an option).
  • When complete, you should see Done! Press ENTER to exit.... Press Enter on the keyboard.
  • A log named MBRCheck_date_time.txt (i.e. MBRCheck_07.21.10_10.22.51.txt) will be created on the desktop.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that log in your next reply.
