  1. Hi there.

    As says on the tin, *foolishly* downloaded a fake Activx plugin to find out that its a spy ware and getting all sorts of fake messages like:

    Currently as typing post my Anti-Virus (McAfee) is running and when completes, I will edit post to let you know of outcome.

    I will attatch my HiJack This in next post if required.

    Please help

    Hi mahm, :wave:

    I need you to follow all the steps HERE and then post back with the three requested logs as attachments
    • AVG antispyware
    • ComboFix
    • Hijackthis (step 15)

    Dont forget to make sure that AVG is set to quarantine the results, that HJT is the last step and to let us know the results of the antirootkit scan.

    Good luck and welcome to techspot.

    Hi there both of you, Thanks very much for the instant reply.

    I have followed that link and try to complete all steps as thorougly as possible, despite having some issues on several steps.
    LOL I fell asleep (it was 5am) during combo and to be woken up at 8am with the ComboFix log in my face!!

    Ok attatched is:

    ComboFix log OK
    HiJackThis OK

    Anything else?

    P.S: I have wireless internet, and since downloading all the bits/bats its gone slower
    P.SS:I byacidentally closed the suspicious .exe is task manager before this (it was like sblstxr blah blah) and they've not come back!!!


    Couldnt save AVG SPYWARE REPORT BUT 3 infections found: ALL RESULS QURANTINED


    ALSO: Since doing all this, when I logon, and put password in and logs in I get a black screen with my cursor. explorer.exe takes a long time to load therefore I have to open it manually by task manager. Any infO?
