I'm having some issues getting rid of this Rogue fake Antivirus infection. Whenever I try to use the internet or open an application a pop up message tells me that there was a problem, I'm infected etc. Then it redirects me to its website trying to get me to buy their crap.
Anyway, what I've done so far is this:
Went to Safe Mode Networking: ran Avira Antivir full scan alongside SUPERAntiSpyware full scan.
Avira came up with nothing, although earlier that night it came up with 3 viruses that were Quarantined
SAS came up with about 1500, 2 Rogue, 1 Malware Trace, and the rest were Cookies. All were Quarantined and removed.
I restarted the computer, as suggested, but when it restarted it went back to normal mode, and the rogue was still there.
I shut it down and then went back to Safe Mode: Networking. I then ran the SUPERAntiSpyware Scan again, but it came up empty with no threats and nothing to clean.
At this point, I'm not sure what to do. I have a wireless internet connection, and even though I tried to get it back nothing I do seems to work. I want to use ComboFix, since it seems that a lot of people have success with this, but I was told I should have someone helping me that knows what they're doing. Also, since I can't download Combofix onto my computer because it has no internet, is there any way that ComboFix can be put on a USB drive and transfered?
Anyone have any advice?
