A day ago, I got infected with something. I don't know what it's called. It started when I downloaded a file and then things started going crazy, when I went to run the program. I'm running Win XP Pack 2 My syptoms are:
First, a red X icon come up in my system tray telling me I was infected and to click there.
Pop-ups were everywhere at random times.
I couldn't access my task manager, a dialog box would say I was the admin...when I am
I coul access the internet even though it was very slow, but I couldn't access sites like mcafee.com and some other anti-virus. I finally got mcafee on my computer, and got some control back.
Anways, I had a lot of adware like Look2Me and a lot others. The others were easy to remove
Here's where I'm at now:
[indent=1]I got that red X icon gone, and managed to remove look2me through an uninstaller I found on one of these forums. I got rid of a bunch of trogans and adwares. I've used Spy Sweeper, Ad-Adware, McAfee, Defender. Now it seems that I got everything deleted, but every once in awhile, my anti-virus pops up saying i have some adware, and it gets rid of it. And look2me seems to comeback now. There's something else...and I need help finding it.
