  1. I had a virus attack my computer yesterday and I'm trying to clear it off. I'v been following instructions I found in an old tread on this site which is very helpful. Some of the steps wouldn't work for me but I followed all I could. I did the HJT but I don't know how to interpret the results. Can someone help me with this? I really want my computer back. Thank so much.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    You shouldn`t be trying to follow instructions from old threads, especially if they were for someone else.

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Also, let me know the results of the Panda Antirootkit scan.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
