Hello there,

 

I do not speak english, so excuse me if I do not make myself clear or if my grammar is not perfect. I don't even know if there's a proper section for introducing myself to this community - in case, I'll be happy to leave a message there.

I'll get to the point - I'm having some troubles with my PC, so I got RogueKiller from the internet and I've just run a scan.

 

I keep getting an alert about my pc being infected by Root.MBR

 

Here are the results:

 

 

 

 

¤¤¤ MBR Check: ¤¤¤

+++++ PhysicalDrive0: MAXTOR STM3250310AS +++++

Partition table:

1 - [ACTIVE] NTFS (0x17) [HIDDEN!] Offset (sectors): 488376000 | Size: 10 Mo

 

 

 

I don't really know what should I do, my pc is probably infected, since I also keep getting weird pop-up windows about meeting sites, travels and other unwanted advertising.

 

Could you please lend me a hand?

Thank you in advance for reading my message. :)

Welcome aboard p22002758.gif

 

Please follow the instructions in THIS GUIDE starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it HERE. Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.

Hey there, many thanks for you answer.

 

 

I opened a new thread in the correct section, as you instructed me to do. Here it is:

The problem is I was not able to produce any log file, since the scan performed with dds.com won't complete. I don't know if I'm doing this wrong, but I've followed "step 6" carefully - so I really don't know why I get this problem.

 

Goodbye
