  1. Was hit with Antivirus 200x today, nasty thing prevented me from opening anything other than an internet browser or running antiblocking scripts, etc. Did the 8-step guide once again and I'm hoping it worked like gem.

    Anywho, would appreciate a check to make sure everything's been cleared. Thanks my tech-savvy compadres.

    Is it widely acknowledged that Facebook apps tend to carry this? I've heard from several people that they do. Anything else I should do to make sure this thing doesn't procreate further before I log on without Safe Mode? Also, I disconnected an external drive after this beast reared its ugly head, so the scanners haven't touched it. Still okay to reconnect, or might there be remnants lurking in the disconnected drive?

    You have work to do.
    It appears that you still have some serious problems that need immediate attention.
    What removal tools are you using... I would start with Avira Antivir, MalwareBytes, and SuperAntiSpyware... running each in SAFE MODE... They will take a lont time....

    Then you will likely need to go into the next level using ComboFix and the rest...
    Plan on spending a long day...

    Read through the other postings for 8 steps and such... keep good notes, and have a plan so as to use your time productively.

    Those logs I posted are from the 8-Step guide. I'll look into ComboFix as well.
