Major malware problems

My computer has major malware problems. I have a lot of malware. I have heard or deleting a file called mad.dll from my System 32 but I can't find it. Also I have all this malware stuff like webHancer, trojans, and WinAntiVirusPro, or somehting like that. Please help me remove these. Maybe a program or a tutorial would help. Thanks guys. If I can fix this, I can save some money

Have You Tried??

In reply to: Major malware problems

More information about your computer would sure help... Windows version, antivirus version, etc. What have you already tried to remove the problem files?

In the meantime, if you're using Windows 2000 or XP, please download, install, then update the program in the link below:

Ewido/AVG Antispyware 7.5 Tool

After installing, updating, etc., please restart the computer into Safe Mode using the instructions below, then run a full scan with AVG Antispyware. Delete all spyware and trojans found.

How To Start In 'Safe Mode'

Hope this helps.
