Hello bleepers

A few weeks ago I was struck with a fake "Personal Internet Security Virus". I had removed one of these before by going into safe mode and using CCleaner+Rkill+MBAM, and I had thought it worked this second time also.

A day or so after I thought I was clean, I noticed my browser sending me to websites I hadn't intended on going.

A little searching and I discovered this is a common problem, and it seems the removal process is unique to each person.

Some guidance in the removal would be most appreciated, as I don't feel comfortable entering passwords on this computer and I depend on it for doing school work.

I'll supply ComboFix, HiJackThis, and whatever logs you need.

In advance, thank you so much,

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.
