I've got PUM.dns. I use Emsisoft Internet Security which did not catch this - I have only been able to find the PUM.dns via RogueKiller. I remove it but it always comes back.
What is it doing to my computer? It's eating files and not letting me connect securely to mail.aol.com, google.com, walmart.com - it redirects my browser to a similar yet non-secure url or the lock is covered by an orange triangle with an ! in the middle.
A tech told me to run windows repair from tweaking.com which revealed "ERROR: Writing Security Info to <MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Perflib\009> failed with: Access is denied."
That's just one of the many error logs I have.
Can you please help fix my computer? I know this is very, very bad. I would be happy to reformat to get rid of this infection. Thank you in advance for your help.
