Hi All

I don't know where to put this request, it kind of crosses over different topics.

I had that Antivirus security pro virus which has now been removed following the method from this site (many thanks for that, it has been a huge relief), however I still get the .exe file errors and deletion when I try and download something and I cannot remove or reinstall Microsoft security essentials.  I have re run the malware program several times now and says everything is clean??

I have window 7 64bit if that helps

G'day David, fellow aussie here.....


I would just about bet money that your PC is still infected mate . In fact i would probably bet the farm on it !


Ok...(on a more serious note)....Post a new Topic here :: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/


Describe what led you to know that you were infected....and what steps you have taken since.


Kind Regards,
