I'm not very good when it comes to viruses..
Lst month my pc encountered Windows XP 2012 Virus.. i was able to fix this thru rkill which i found in this website.
at first it won't work.. i downloaded several antivirus..such as spybot,avg,mbam,etc.. used them all.. at the same time used rkill.. then i do't know how it happened,, but it sudenly stopped the virus from popping up..
next thing happened is after shutting down the pc, when i turn it on again. something about "command..." i can't remeber..
what i did is open the task bar..ctrl alt dlt, then end process explorer... then new task, explorer... somehow during the long run it just seemed that the pc is working fine again..
this month though, while my younger brother was playing on a private server in RUNEscape i think, he did not know what he did but i saw that there is a new virus again..
saying that my pc is infected etc.. my brother downloaded Zentom...
and there the pc started to not work properly again.. lots of pop up.. can't use internet.. keeps popping out.. etc..
so we tried using different computer to access bleepingcomputer..
found this post about zentom removal.. it says use RKILL and MBAM
so i used RKILL,.
it seemed to work.. after a hundred time..
then for MBAM, it won't seem to work... no matter how hard we try it never worked.. so i just let the computer be.. since internet is working already and the virus zentom seemed to be gone..
the thing is when opening the computer i have to do this process again of ctrl alt dlt new task desktop..
so that i can access desktop..
then my brother said that when searchin using any kind of search engine.. it redirects you to another page with very little search results..
im using a dell desktop.. windows xp home, i dont know about other details.. i hope this site will help me.. thank you all...
