Hi everybody! My name is Gustavo and i have a little problem. Somehow my computer is infected with something i cant detect and keeps opening an internet explorer window telling me to download thw windows antivirus protection because the one i have is not good enough. I ve managed on deleting a sign that was near the clock in the task bar that says "your computer is infected". When i click on it another message displayed: "try downloading regcleaner and get rid of the viruses", or something like that. So i downloaded the regcleaner but it needed to be registraded to clean my computer. The good thing of this is that it showed a screen with the things that i should delet. However, i can't find any of the items of the register that it said. The one i found was "vturqon.dll" but i couldn't erase it because it was being used by an aplication. I restarted the computer in safe mode but it was useless. Please help me.
