  1. Hi, I am having a malware problem with my computer and found the 8 step manual, so I decided to give it a try.

    So for the first step, I decided to download Avira Free and try it out.
    So I downloaded it, installed it and it automatically ran a test..
    so viruses were shown and it said to move to quarantine and i did.

    then everything closed.
    So I clicked on internet exploerer to go back to this manual and it wouldnt let me
    Its as if it was deleted because the icon is just a little white box now. I dont know what to do, im freaking out because I dont have internet explorer anymore

    please help. :(

    We'll try.
    I assume, you're using some working computer to post here?

    Let's see, if we can look at your computer booting from an external source.

    Using good computer, please download OTLPE (filesize 120,9 MB)

    • When downloaded double click on OTLPENet.exe and make sure there is a blank CD in your CD drive. This will automatically create a bootable CD.
    • Reboot your bad computer using the boot CD you just created.
      • Note : If you do not know how to set your computer to boot from CD follow the steps here
    • Your system should now display a REATOGO-X-PE desktop.
    • Depending on your type of internet connection, you should be able to get online as well so you can access this topic more easily.
    • Double-click on the OTLPE icon.
    • Ensure the box "Automatically Load All Remaining Users" is checked and press OK
    • OTL should now start.
    • Press Run Scan to start the scan.
    • When finished, the file will be saved in drive C:\OTL.txt
    • Copy this file to your USB drive if you do not have internet connection on this system
    • Please post the contents of the OTL.txt file in your reply.

    What do you mean?
    You won't lose anything.

    I thought rebooting it means everything on my computer is going to get erased.

    No, silly :)
    You simply have to boot your computer from created CD.
