Hi there been on here a few times and always found expert help (y)
My sister has managed to instal the Vista Home Security 2011 virus that shows a fake program telling you about made up threats
Luckily she was only anstandard user and it is somehow not effecting my administrator account.

The Computer as you can understand is running vista

I've ran Eset (my normal antivirus) and malwarebytes, superantispyware etc and I've saved all the logs if needed. The actuall Home security application seems to run from a file called Huy.exe but shutting what seems to be an Intel process from task manger gets rid of the Home Security tray icon.

Here is a dds log.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm sure there's stuff remaining that the scanners have not removed

Now cannot open .exe files because of an association file error so it displays an 'Open file with what program' box. :angry:

Hi there

I followed your instructions to install a new Java runtime environment but during the installation it displays an error. I did seem to have a Java related problem around Christmas that ESET wiped out telling me it was a trojan no sure if this is related.
I've run the online scanner from ESET and it didn't find any rogue files and i didn't see a log but i can run it again if necessary.

Thankyou for your assistance
