My computer is 2 years old and has been connected to the internet for that entire time. I didn't have any antivirus/antispyware/antiadware software installed on my computer and security warning never went off until my brother downloaded some codecs from download.com, the website claims that their software is spyware free, but it's obviously not, becasue those codecs were what infected my computer...something by the name of Zlob? So I install Kasperski antivirus, after an hour of deep search it only found one file and so I deleted it. Then I uninstall it and install AVG antivirus, this program doesn't find anything, I uninstall it and install AdWare, it finds about 18 files and deletes them (the exclamation triangle blinker -
that was going off and saying I have adware on my computer goes off after running Adware). After all this the shield icon is still blinking from an X to a ? saying I still have viruses. I install and run avast!, it finds 18 infected files but for some reason cannot remove them or repair them. Most of them are trojans, a few of them are in my Java folder, a few came in with codecs, then I find this DriveCleaner Free that I have never seen before. I uninstall DriveCleaner, restart, run antivirus scan again, it finds a few infected files that are the leftovers of DriveCleaner. After all this my security warning is still blinking, so I decide to do a Sys. Restore in Safe mode. I pick a date and try restoring, but for some reason it will not restore to that check point. And I haven't created any myself. I don't know what to do at this point.
