Hoping to be Virus Free Now

  1. I am using my boyfriends work laptop and my son visited a site or downloaded something containing a virus. I had gotten a fake Avast program show up on my desktop stating a win32:trojan-gen{other} virus. I followed your wonderfully simple instructions to clean the computer and now just want to make sure everything is good to go!

    All the steps I have taken has helped as it was even taking over my explorer, which made it difficult to fix. Luckily, I have a PC to do the research on. Thank you for the easy to follow set of instructions.

    Hoping all is good and not have to have him send it to IT!

    Thank-you

    Adobe

    Hi :

    I see an outdated Adobe Acrobat 6, which includes a "Toolbar" & "Distiller", a
    security risk . Do you use the "Distiller", as described at http://desktoppub.about.com/od/pdf/g/distiller.htm !? IF yes, at a minimum you should "Update" to Version 8 ; IF no, you should seriously consider uninstalling
    the entire Acrobat program and IF it suits your needs, consider the safer
    "Foxit Reader" .

    In addition, I can find no Info on :
    "O2 - BHO: (no name) - {BD7B5A50-5637-41F4-B366-409678EA660C} - (no file)"
    therefore, I recommend you have HijackThis "fix" it .

    thanks for the great help! Everything seems to be in working order now. I deleted the Abode and the line you suggested.
