So, I think I got some sort of malware a ways back, like a month, but due to extreme circumstances, (don't ask) I wasn't able to do anything about it until about 2 weeks ago. Now, I got Norton Internet Security 2007 and Kapersky Antivirus, and the first time I ran them through, neither could find anything. This is just about when my computer screen started to glitch, to the point where text is unreadable. By glitching I mean little colored blocks appear all over the screen and distort things. I did a system format, and now the slowdown is incredible and it glitches on a regular basis. I haven't been able to reinstall Norton, either. A few days ago, Kapersky picked something up called VirTool.DOS.TPE and I got rid of it, but the problem is still here. What should I do?

Welcome to BC onetime :thumbsup:

I suggest you follow the directions in this guide. Then create an HJT log, you will find the directions in the guide.

Create a new topic in this forum, not here and give it a good descriptive title. Briefly summarize what the problems are, what you have done to try to solve it, and what worked and didn't work and paste in your HJT log.

After you post your log, DO NOT make any further changes to your computer: deleting files, editing the registry, using special fix tools, installing or uninstalling software etc. as this will make it more difficult for the HJT team to help you.

Please be patient as the HJT team is very busy. DO NOT bump your log as the team may think that someone is already helping you. If you have not had a response in five days, add a response to the five days no response topic and paste in the link to your thread.
