    Dismiss Notice virus problem

By Newbieff
May 23, 2010
  1. somehow got this virus today, ESET nod keeps blocking it every time i do a google search (happens in yahoo search, or any other search engine).

    used ESET NOD to scan but couldn't detect anything. Also tried using system restore to few days ago, but with no success.

    so I followed the steps to get the logs and they are in the attachment

    I would greatly appreciate it if someone can tell me how to fix this thing.

    Please explain use of word "blocking" . What is Eset doing? Are you getting an Alert, a message? What?
    Do you have a firewall in the Eset program? Are you getting the message that Eset has blocked IP

    sorry for not replying sooner, but i decided to reformat, and just finished getting my PC back up.

    thanks for the reply though, but after further consideration, I decided to go for the reformat, since my PC has been giving me all sorts of problem before this virus thing hit (entering sleep and not waking up again, blue screen every so often, freezes, etc).
