Hi. While I was on IE, I started getting a bunch of pop ups appear. The next thing I knew my mcafee virus scan appeared removing a bunch of infected files. Some, of course, where not removed. I tried to restore, but it didn't work. I then went into safemode and deleted a few files from the add/remove program in control panel. I did a little research before deleting the programs. Some where...Think Ads, New something...I forgot. Sorry. I then went into the registry under the run folder and deleted a few more things. kernels32.exe, oodsregp.exe, etc. My question is it appears that my computer is working better now, but when I hit alt-ctrl-delete, I still have A LOT of processes running. cfg32a.exe, oodsregp.exe, cfg32.exe...I think these files are also bad. How do I get rid of these files? Can I download a adware removal program. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Erin

Follow the instructions in the link below for Smitfraudfix.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
