I am in safe mode. 2 days ago, I visited a site for a random product (underarm pads to protect clothes from sweat!? Just for kicks, wanted to include for your 411) and immediately I realized I picked up something. I am not sure if I just had a dormant virus and it was triggered or if it was the sweat site!
So, immediately ran malwarebytes-nothing. It normally picks up everything so I became more panicked and continued with avira; while avira was running, I was online (NOT in safe mode) and would get the avira notices about autorun,but then it would say "198 detections", then continued througout the entire system scan to say it found hundreds and hundreds of detections. It was almost spreading as it scanned! Went offline for the scan and THEN went into safe mode for a new malwarebytes quick scan (still nothing!) and continued a full system scan, which found nothing. Seems as though it was blocking the mbam somehow.
SO, after working on it for hours, I ended up restoring to an earlier date a few days before. ALl seemed ok yesterday then today, again, avira is going nuts with detections. I am back in safe mode and have followed all instructions here to create logs. The gmer scan will complete and then give me an error so I am attempting to run again.
I am NOT computer savvy. The IT guy at my work has Symantec on all of our laptops. I have malwarebytes and avira, just downloaded spyware doctor when attempting to do the gmer correctly. It automatically ran a scan that came up with lots of tracking,malware crap but nothing "serious." I am hoping one of you smart computer aces can help me delete this one and for all! I am so frustrated that my sweat glands are in overdrive and those pesky sweat protectors sure would come in handy!
Thank you in advance of any info you can provide. The gmer is still re-scanning.
