Hey guyz
I was watching some video yesterday and it wasnt working and asked me download the video codecs whose link it gave me. i downloaded that and then my internet explorer went bizarre. i have IE 7. when i open IE it gives me a message
w32.Myzor.FK@yf is a virus that infects files with .exe extensions. it attempts to steal passwords and private information from the infected computer.
type - virus
infected lenght - 138293 bytes
system affected - windows 95, 98,MEm NT, 2003, XP
technical detail - 1. creates files in %Windir%/directory. by default, this is c:/windows.
2. adds values to registry keys : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHIINE/software/Microsoft/windows/currentversion/run
3. scans the hard for .exe fils and infects any executable files
Recommendation - click OF to download officially approved security.

in the homepage it changed itself to some website and asks me to downlaod either pesttrap or spyheal immediately.

Im not downloading it because somewhere i read on internet not to do that. after i cancel that and then IE works but some pop-up comes up sayinng severe security concert warning. i deleted that codec but still its not helping. i also tried to restore the system to some back days but it says it cant be done.

so i neeed help guyz. if any one could please help me what to do and how to i get rid of this virus thing.
i will really appreciate ur help guyz.
thanks alot

Ok What OS, Browser and Anti virus/spyware tools do you have.
I'm gonna go with XP here:
I still say run the Smitfraud as in the first link. In safe mode

Download and scan with AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 Free in "SAFE MODE". How to start Windows in Safe Mode
Print out the AVG Install and Scan Instructions. HERE
Be sure to check for the any updates to all these programs after you install them.

Download and run SUPERAntiSypware, free version Home User

Now Run Windows Live OneCare
Be sure to click ONLY on the grey box below the picture of a wrench “Full Service Scan”
This may take some time especially it it needs to defragment the drive.
Please post back with any questions and results
