  1. I started having this fake virus warning every once in a while when i tried to open a folder in my computer. The message said something like 'your computer is infected click here to download a antivirus program' the only way to close it was to click no, which then tried to open another window which was always blocked by my norton and i would receive a notice from norton that norton block an attack on my computer.
    I followed the 8 steps and i'm attachingq the logs here.
    I have not seen it happen again since i ran the tools.

    forgot the attachments

    Your MBAM log shows
    C:\Windows\k.txt (Trojan.FakeAlert) -> Delete on reboot.
    Is that done? If so then you're probably good to go.
    Are you facing any further problems?
