Iam so stressed, I move to uni this week. I have only just bought a notepad. I have spent hours putting things on it like pics etc.
I recieved a warning from windows yesterday. It said abode photoshop was a trojen horse. Now abode I recieved free with the notepad.
My brother does IT at college, I don't know much about computers so I listened to him when he said click on scan online. It all looked legit.
It was 'searching' for the free antivirus programmes that could delete trojen horses.
I downloaded antispy safeguard.. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS, IT IS FAKE. IT WILL NOT LET YOU GO ON THE INTERNET, DO CRTL ALT DEL, AND MAKES MANY HIDDEN FILES.
It tried to make me buy their 'programme'
Luckily I have another computer in the house, on there the internet informed me it was fake and what to do.
I managed to delete these files:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings "WarnonBadCertRecving" = "0"
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings "WarnOnPostRedirect" = "0"
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon "Shell" = "%UserProfile%\Application Data\antispy.exe"
C/windows/tasks/at1job and at2job and at3job
the one that I can't get rid of is C/doc=set/myname/localset/temp/svchost.exe
Is that all of the files deleted, is this the only one left?
When I try delete it it says: delete of file denied disk not full or write protected and your not using the file
I tried to cut and paste it into the recycle bin but that won't work.
Someone please help!
