Can't seem to 'fix' my problem...

  1. Having very similar problem to Novus

    What Novus describes in his first message is almost exactly what is going on with my computer. I don't know exactly how it all started because my husband was online at that point. I think when he got the first fake warning of a virus he didn't stop to think that it might be a "set-up" and started downloading programs. Now I've got a mess and I'm no computer expert... but more knowlegable than my husband. We have hi-speed internet thru Adelphia and use their Freedom security system. This is the first problem we've ever had. I ran Trend Micro Housecall to check for problems that Freedom wasn't picking up. The report said that there were 4 programs detected that it could not disinfect:; Troj_ZLOB.TF; Troj_FAKEVIR.G; ADW_SE.131278
    I've tried various means to find them and delete them but with no luck. I'm at my wit's end and would appreciate any help you can give me.
    I have to warn you though---I'm not necessarily going to understand abbreviations, etc. for technical jargon.
    A computer tech who helped us with a hardware problem awhile back used this site to figure out what was going on and I kept it bookmarked since then just in case.
    Whatever extra info you need I'll do my best to provide.
    Thank you in advance for any assistance you can give.
