I've got a 64 bit Windows 7 system that has picked up zeroaccess. I'm running McAfee and I'm getting a pop up about every minute listing zeroaccess as well as Artemis!084D88AF1946, Generic.dx!b2qj, as well as zeroaccess.

I've looked all over for a way to remove zeroacess, which seems to be the cause of the problem, but so far I've not found anything that doesn't want me to spend a bunch of money from a website that appears to be written in poor English. That might be the perfect fix, but at this point I'm too worried to trust it. the McAfee Total Protection (which apparently isn't total) that I have shows Desktop.ini, Desktop(64).ini, andother Desktop.ini, and Desktop(5).ini as being infected and unable to delete.

I know just enough about computers to be dangerous to myself so any help would be appreciated.

Hi, Take a look at these two forums. Only post in one. The first link will usually be sufficient for most users.

Am I infected? What do I do? No DDS, HijackThis, or ComboFix logs should be posted in this forum.

Now posted in the "Am I infected? What do I do?" forum so I am closing this topic
