Unfortunately, my laptop has joined the growing list of victims of this virus. I noticed this infection sometime last week when it turned up in a Windows Defender scan, but I suspect it might have been lurking around my computer for at least two weeks before then. I used to use Trend Micro PC-Cillin, but the trojan must have messed with it because the antivirus had not updated/scanned my computer in more than 2 weeks. I constantly got "This feature is still initializing" errors even when the computer had been on for hours. A friend of mine removed Trend Micro and installed Avast, AdAware and Spybot in its place, but full scans with these three programs do not show the virus. Only Windows Defender was able to detect it. Windows Defender itself also stopped working for a while, and I actually had to uninstall it and reinstall it from the Microsoft website. Internet explorer has also been acting weird, my volume and Dell Wireless signal icons have disappeared from the taskbar, all sorts of problems have just been popping up, and I am really just sick and tired and need help!!! I am a neophyte computer user, so I don't exactly know how to go about removing this infection. I would really appreciate some help because at this point, I am so ready to throw out my computer! Thanks in advance!
