Windows 7 Pro Desktop, Service Pack 1, 64 Bit, Intel Core 2 Duo Processor
While working in Photoshop and attempting to open a Topaz Labs filter which has been on my computer for over a year with no problems, Avast shot me a warning about the Topaz Filter being malicious and quarantined it (and the filter doesn't work now) and told me I needed to shut down so Avast could run a boot scan. Photoshop wouldn't work anymore, so i had no choice but to turn off and restart
The Avast Boot Scan found two viruses - (1) WIN32:OUTBROWSE-JV AND (2) VBS: AGENT-BII. I had Avast send both to the chest.
I then looked up these viruses on the net and they both seem very malicious - can open back doors, can reinfect my computer continuously, can eventually corrupt all my data, etc.
So, I'd like to know (1) how to completely remove these viruses (and all their registry entries, etc.) and (2) is there a way to know if they have corrupted anything else and if so, (3) how can I remove/fix any harm these viruses have done.
Would appreciate any help you can give - am afraid to do anything on this computer until I am sure it is clean!
Thanks so much!
