& SAS are recently updated. Physically disconnect from internet connection to prevent even more badness from being downloaded!
You don't say what OS/SP level so these will be general suggestions. IF Vista/Win 7 be sure to do from log on w/ admin rights.
I would first try opening Task Mgr (C/A/D
together) & try & spot unknown new processes & applications running.
Look for the name of the fake A/V & similar. If you can see any , then disable the process/applications from there.
Then boot to safe mode & try running SAS & Spybot & Avast from safe mode (before windows loads start pressing F8 button every second. Use up/down keys to select safe mode & hit enter, don't worry about weird appearance as it will be normal when you reboot to normal mode).
Hopefully, some or all will work in this mode.Let them find & quarantine/remove all found while noting on paper the names & paths of infections found. Particularly note if ANY listed in System restore or system volume. If they are, you'll have to dump restore points but hold off on this till you see IF they're contaminated.
The problem is probably running from a safe spot in a .temp file likely in your IE cache (since it wants to download more bad stuff using IE). In Control Panel>internet options delete cookies & delete temp files including Offline files & delete History. While there look in Options >Connection Tab to see if a "proxy server" is listed/enabled. If you don't use such, then disable IF one found.
If you have other browsers, delete their temp & caches also. Same for caches in Java.
OR IF you have CCleaner on board, Under Options>Advanced, uncheck box for "only delete windows files older than..." and then run CCleaner.
Then after cleaning , scans & removals, reboot to normal mode and see if all seems normal. IF so, I'd update all protectors and re scan with each.
Post back w/ more info/results. IF still not right, then there are other steps to be taken with other programs & tools which will need access to a clean computer & some CD/DVD or flash thumb drives to transfer these new tools to infected machine. Good Luck!
Some sort of virus suddenly popped up on my computer.
I'm using Super anti spyware to try to get rid of it & so far it's found "Trojan dropper" & "adware tracking".
An Antivirus software demo & at first appeared to be working but it seems it's part of the problem. I stopped this program at 80% & unplugged my Internet.
My Internet explore keeps opening on it's own. Red shields keep appearing at the bottom of my screen which are supposedly antivirus, but they are also part of the problem. Also I am unable to open what I need to in my control panel because of this.
An unfamiliar window (antivirus software alert infiltration) keeps popping up. Ot looks like it's trying to emulate the windows antivirus program software.
I tried opening Avsti & Spybot but it won't let me into either. Like I said, the only prgram working is the Super Anti Spyware.
I'm wondering if I do a system restore, will that possibly fix the problem? Any help /advice on how to fix this problem is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
