  1. Yesterday I accidentally downloaded something, and now I keep getting popups saying that my system is infected with said virus, and google results are being changed to...something they shouldn't be. I could really use some help.

    P.S. I'm 16 and not exactly an expert at the inner workings of computers, so please assume I'm an ***** when giving me directions.

    Hi Scotty2Hotty and welcome to TechSpot.:wave:

    You need to have a read of this - If your system is infected. Read this before deciding whether to CLEAN or REFORMAT.

    Then if you should wish to proceed with cleaning your system you need to go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, Combofix, and AVG Antispyware logs as ATTACHMENTS into this thread, only after doing the above.
    We also need to know the result of Panda Antirootkit.

    This thread is for the use of Scotty2Hotty only. Please don`t post your own virus/spyware problems in this thread. Instead, open a new thread in our security and the web forum.
