Ok, please bare with me as I'm not a tech guy, but I am learning.

I use AVAST on my PC. I have Spybot S & D and in is installed and running as is MBAM. I can't open the interface on the latter 2. I've uninstalled and re-installed to no avail. Spybot has popped up these things and I'm not sure if I should allow the change. The 1st when I deny, the 2nd one pops up and then I deny it the 1st one comes back and just keeps that up. Looks like without allowing, they won't go away. Avast has notified me that it has found something suspicious and say it's been identified as a "False Positive" and it has found other things. Without being able to open the interface on SB S& D and MBAM I can't scan with those. I don't know what to do now, can somebody please give me guidance?

I'm still learning about computers too but it would appear that you have an infected registry. I know from my experience here at BC that I would not be able to help you with it but the guys here are more than willing, just be patient. The registry is a very touchy area to go poking around in(if in fact that's your problem) and I wouldn't recommend trying to fix it on your own.

It also could be that you're posting this in an area not designed for 'help threads'. Mod. edit. When topics are misposted, we move them to the proper forum, as I am doing now. Moving to AII. ~ OB

Sorry I couldn't be more help but I hope you get your problem fixed soon.

Hello,

Looking at your AVAST report, you have a bad rootkit.

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.

Orange Blossom :cherry:
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
