Hi, I am sure my computer has been infected. I have had some instances in which my computer turned off unexpectadly, 3-4 times in the past 2 months, but paid little attention to it. Last night, after watching a clip on-line, I got 20 pop-ups saying: "Hard drive clusters are partly damaged" "Windows OS can't detects a free hard drive space. hard drive error." Also, most of my icons have been hidden, including my IE, black backround and pretty much everything on my HDD is hidden. I am protected (or so I thought) with Trend Micro Titanium AV, which is updated. I ran a quick and full scan when I noticed my laptop started to act up, and it showed no virus detection, and no files infected, just cca 400 (and counting) of web threats stopped. I then stumbled upon this topic on your website and started the 5 steps of removing the virus. I downloaded and installed mbam.exe, scanned the computer and restarted it. I must say I'm not a computer wiz, and I would definitely appreciate any help I get. Thank you.
