I was alerted to a severe attack and the IE home page has been hijacked by an advert for anti Spyware/Anti Virus products. I then got the new icons on the screen as described by others. Following a google search I hit the Tech Spot site and found Howards tips and process for the removal of Trojans and the ilk.at http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic30213.html I have followed the instructions and cleared some Zlob trojans detected by Bitdefender but all else seems to be clear. Have followed the instructions to the letter (I am a novice so tech speak means nothing). I ran Kaspersky, Bit Defender, Macafee, and AVG anti virus and Anti spyware. Rebooted and stil get the notifications on the system bar and the capture of the IE home page. the results of the scans are in the attachments. Two Questions - Is the PC realy infected or is this an advertising scam from 'VirusBuster' and if so how do I clean it out and/or get rid of the IE problem. Hope you can help this has taken all day so far.
