I would like to thank you guys for clicking this link and trying to help me with this situation I'm in. ^_^
Just to start off, I have no idea where I obtained this virus and was wondering if anyone can help me. A nice samaritan aided me a bit in containing this virus. He instructed me to download Malware Bytes and use DDS to scan and paste logs to identify the current issue I have now.
I cannot locate my reformatting disk because I think my dad threw it away. And also I cannot system restore because my computer is half-dead? It had a system32 corruption, but my cousin fixed it a bit. And I have no set dates for system restore.
I'll recap to the start on what happened.
First, I was on my computer strolling through a gaming forum, talking with friends with instant messaging, and listening to iTunes when my computer suddenly lagged a bit. Then on the lower right hand of my computer popped up a small bubble that said "Your computer is at risk". Then when I tried to open up Mozilla to google, it would not permit me to continue any further as "The file mozilla.exe cannot be executed due to a potentially harmful virus" [something like that]. It happened to everything else from something as complex as opening my internet to opening notepad; I could not open anything.
My friends from school then came over to check what's wrong with my computer. My internet would not turn on as some kind of virus was disabling me from going online. My friend told me my proxy settings just "vanished". But after going back and talking to my online friend, I fixed up the proxy and now I can go online.
I then downloaded Malware Bytes and ran a quick scan and then "removed" them. I don't have a full antivirus yet, but I remembered downloading Avast! 2 years ago, but when I un-installed, there was a ".dll" left. Not sure of the name, but it won't remove itself from my computer and this is preventing me from progressing any further by downloading any version of Avast!. I do not use AVG much because it blocks certain stuff and won't let me play my favorite online game.
One more thing, I had a past experience like this. I had a rogue virus that was persistent in asking me to buy "this specific brand of anti-virus" to eliminate the current one I had in my computer. I knew it was a scam and it locked everything on my computer. I used Rkill on that one, and it just went away so I forgot about it and returned to my usual ways. Going on computer to talk and play games and homework.
That's all I can remember. If it feels like I'm being to vague on any of this, please reply and tell me so I can clarify for you.
Thanks so much!!
