Hello, my name is Aaron. I am new here. I have some computer experience hardware/network related. However Trojan horse removal is relatively new to me. I have removed a few but nothing as exiting as this.
I let a friend borrow one of my computers for 2 months and I had been running it without AVG for years with no problem. However that is a bad idea for people that dont know what they are doing.
I have no clue what 'free smiles', 'porn sites', or 'flash game' websites my friend was going to. Chances are that he never deleted the history.
However, this morning when I wokeup out of my computer was coming some sort of fox news broadcast or something. Knowing that I had no such program that would randomly be blaring nonsense like this I smiled at the creativity some looser in his basement had when he created this.
First thing I did was check the 'sound mixer' in windows 7 to find like 15 programs all named 'name not available'.
This confirmed my suspicions, a virus. I installed AVG and ran a scan figuring that it would be a quick fix but nope! AVG bailed out on me with a 'Manual remove only".
Im not sure how to post log files on here or list of my services. I will need a bit of a walk-through.
