My laptop has been infected with fake antivirus. The virus is very similar to the image I got from HowToGeek.com
I also get my internet browers open to inappropriate sites every 10mins (viagra.com, adult.com, porn.com)
Not knowing, I clicked on the (yes) (no) buttons on the gray box, along with other (stop scan)and (stay unprotected) buttons trying to stop it from appearing.
These boxes appears in front of all the windows I open, blocking my view... so I have to move them to the side to see what I'm doing. And obiviously, these fake antivirus windows keep reappearing whenever i close them or click on either (yes) or (no).
I followed the steps to clean my computer from here:
I downloaded SUPERAntiSpyware and ran (in safe mode) that program which detected and cleaned 40+ viruses.
and then I ran (in safe mode) MalwareBytes after that, but it didn't detect anything. But it mentioned that the program was 16 days out of day, but I couldn't update it cause I have no internet access so I just ran it without the update. Could this be the issue?
After running both programs it seems the computer has worse symtoms.
In the taskbar (where the clock is and the little icons running when computer starts), I have hundreds of fake firewall image (red shield with the white x) flooded in that space. And I can't open anything anymore, while before I was able to open certain files/programs.
