Cannot download Defogger or DDS Tool as recommended by Bleepingcomputer. When I try to download these the "System Tool" in the lower right pops up with "file MinDM.exe is infected. Please activate your antivirus software."
Upon computer startup the desktop now has wallpaper saying "Warning! Your're in Danger!...etc."
Cannot run AVG.

Hello, did you install IE7Pro?
EDIT: I moved this to the Am I Infected forum as there is no DDS log.

Please follow our Removal Guide here Remove System Tool and SystemTool .
After reading how the malware is misleading you ...
You will move to the Automated Removal Instructions

After you completed that, post your scan log here,let me know how things are.
The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
