I don't know how, but I've been infected BAD with what I imagine is multiple infections and it seems like it happened overnight. Some of the things I'm experiencing are:
-When clicking on google results I get directed to random websites maybe 8 times before it finally works and goes to the site I clicked on. Often it will send me to a website with a squiggly number 2 as the websites mini icon.
-Internet wont work with firefox or google chrome, only IE will work and thats only sometimes. I usually have to start up IE right when my computer loads up because if I wait the infection will cut my access and IE wont work.
-Also, after maybe 10mins of being on my windows Xp will go from the blue default theme to the old beige classic theme.
-Something is killing my sound too, if I dont immediately load up a song within the first 10 mins of startup my sound will usually not work. But when I do load a song on startup it will continue to work forever until I close out of the song. Like something was waiting to hijack my sound rights or something lol
I have run MBAM, ad aware, avast, and zone alarms virus scanner. They have found some things but the issues continue. I am hoping someone can help me in finding and removing this malware and save my computer from a reformat (I dont have my windows key so this would suck and I really don't want to do this).
Tell me what you need from me and I will gladly assist in any way possible thanks!
