I'm new here, just wanted to say, "Hello everyone"!

Wow it's been awhile since I was on a pc help forum, can't remember the name of the one I used to be on. I know that's terrible, I did love the site, but the name just didnt, IMO, fit the site. Lol

Other than this introduction, my pc problem is driving me mad! I'm getting a pop up that is only half showing. I can only get on in safe mode and do anywhere on it. Something, don't remember it either, told me I am infected with the 32.blaster worm. There is this pop up there that when I try to click on it, it disappears, all the while this thing keeps multiplying. Hundreds of times. As you can tell, I haven't had that pc on in a few weeks, so if I'm being too vague please just ask me and I will try to get the info. It just scares me to even get on it unless I'm in safe mode.

My pc is an Asus laptop W7. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks.

Hello -

What makes you think you have a Blaster Worm infection on your Windows 7 based PC ?

Since the original vulnerability that allowed the Blaster Worm to infect a PC was patched in mid-2003 and so hasn't affected any version of the operating system since Windows XP Service Pack 2 was released in 2004, it's highly unlikely that you actually have the Blaster Worm.

 

Please Read This Old Update > > http://support.microsoft.com/kb/826955

 

What's far more likely is that you have one of the many fake anti-malware (a.k.a FakeAV) infections that is claiming you have the Blaster Worm in an attempt to trick you into installing and paying for the real malware.

 

Please post a snapshot with Speccy for more system details -
How to Publish a snapshot with Speccy <<--Directions Here, only post the link.

 

 

Thank You -

EDIT - As this topic was moved to Am I Infected, I will add a few more scans for you ........

 

Download Security Check by Screen317

* Double-click SecurityCheck.exe
* Follow the onscreen instructions inside the black box.
* A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.
