Hi,

My laptop appears to be infected with several viruses. The first one is a "sound virus" where I get repeated short radio like commercials ads that emerge from my computer even when my browser is closed. I also get script errors that refer to websites that are not visible. I also have a redirect virus that affects both google and yahoo searches. Recently, several program file icons seemed to disappear from my start menu, althoiugh I was able to relocate the programs themselves and pin some new ones -but other programs and files seem to have disappeared for good. For several months, I had been using Hitman Pro whenever I got a redirect virus, or a fake "virus attack/cleaner" program, and it was amazing in that Hitman Pro just got rid of them immediately. But now, nothing seems to work. I run Anti-Malware bytes and that picks up a few things, but never gets rid of the problems entirely. I have Vista on a Toshiba satellite. Can someone help?

Run Malwarebytes quick scan again, remove anything found. Then go to Http://www.superantispyware.com - download and update the free version. Boot the PC into safe mode - begin tapping the F8 key every few seconds as the system boots up until the screen offering the Safe Mode option appears. - run the full scan


remove any infections found, reboot into normal mode and come back here and let me know how that went, then I can give you further instructions.

EDIT: Just to be sure . . Is it OK to run the scan even if I do NOT seem to have to do the tapping on the F8 ?
