My first and needy post!
For the last few months I have been having problems with my computer. Examples are browser change, home page change, sending out spam to those in my email address book, unexplained downloads ( never found on my machine.)
After some homework, I suspect the JAVA/EXploit/Bytverify malware. I have removed 16 such files in two attempts, all seemed to be linked to the above.
My problems seem to have decreased since I deleted this rubbish but how can I be be sure that all the malware has been permanenty deleted? I suspect it still lies in recent Restore points.
Could any one suggest how I can be sure that my actions have been totally successful?
I am running W7 home edition, 64 bit wih Norton Security, mwBytes,Spybot search & destroy, none of which was able to prevent infection! I just don't know where this infection came from to avoid re-infection!
