Good day all,
I appreciate any help I can get.
Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit
4 gb ram
Intel Core 2 Duo @2.4 GHz
A few weeks ago I got infected with the notorious Win 7 Antispyware 2012. I followed the instructions on this website (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-win-7-antispyware-2012
) to remove the issue. After I ran Malwarebytes and Microsoft Security Essentials, around 14 or 15 other viruses were found and removed. I thought ok I should be good now. Started the infected computer the other day and ran Malwarebytes and MSE again just to make sure and they both came up with nothing. Started the computer up today and kept recieving pop ups from spybot that Temp: winupd.exe wanted to make changes to my registry (denied changes) and now I keep getting pop ups from spybot with action of DisablingRegistry tool (new data 0) and other disable actions... I have denied them. Currently I am backing up my important files now. I am somewhat out of options right now, the only other thing I can think of to do would be to reinstall my os (I just did this with my sisters computer and it took a good 10 hours worth of updating and installing to get back to normal operating) and I would like to try and avoid that situation again.
Open to all suggestions! Really appreciate any and all help I can get. Please let me know if you need any other information or if I left anything out!
Thank you so much!
Have a great day.
