Opened an email but did not open the link that was in the e-mail. Immediately got a pop up from AVG that there was a virus detected and I should click on the pop up. Didn't occur to me that I have avast, not AVG until it was too late. Now I cannot get on line, it says the firefox.exe file cannot be found. Same with IE and Chrome. Ran a virus scan with avast, freeze up makes it impossible to run a thorough scan. Can run a quick scan but it shows nothing. Defender shows nothing. Get "Not responding" often and freeze up of screen. been getting the not responding notice for a while. Months. Running vista home premium on dell studio (I think it is a 1735) Need this computer as I bring work home to finish--haven't gotten finished yet this weekend! Was able to open IE this morning in emergency mode, but could not go anywhere as there was a malicious file detected. I do not have malwarebytes. Can I download it to disk on another computer and take it to the infected computer? RKill also? Help?
