Hi, my name is Greg. I'm a high school student who has possibly screwed up pretty hard.

Earlier this morning, my Avast started acting up, giving me the "Threat has been detected." message over and over. I took the fourth time it did this as a warning sign and did a scan. After the scan, it told me everything was a-okay, but the messages didn't stop.
So I installed malware bytes, which started giving me its own messages. I ran a scan there; it cleaned stuff out, I restarted, and the messages continued to pop up.

A scan with Hitman Pro yielded the same results.
Such messages still plague my troubled computer's soul now. Here are the pictures of each one.

Something I believe I should mention about the avast warnings is that they are duplicate messages in terms of two. Basically, there's two of each of them. I don't know if that's important, but every bit of information helps, I'd assume.

There has been no drop in performance for the computer itself, but that, I believe, doesn't detract from the severity of the problem. Whether it's the NSA or Fred the teenager down the street matters to me not, I don't want people spyin' on mah junk.

Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

- Greg

*Edit* I've also tried removing a pesky something or other from my computer called incredibar, which I now realize is linked to all sorts of nasty stuff.

Welcome aboard p22002758.gif

 

Zekos requires elevated help.

 

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.
