I formatted my computer downstairs and forgot to install Norton. So when I came home yesterday my sister told me it's full of spyware, you can't even google (it gives you casino and xxx sites).
Then there are like 15 icons on the desktop which keep on coming.
Startpage is constantly changed to some fucksite.
My background is "the blue screen of death"
It's not in Software, it IS in the "ctrl-alt-del" screen where you can see if something runs. But you can't stop it.

Norton doesn't find anything
Advanced System Optimizer doesn't find it either..

Right now I got another popup again.. :thumbsdown:

Anybody have any suggestions?

I think I'm gonna format it again..
 
And use FF while browsing if you aren't already...make sure you have SP2 installed, get Spybot S&D if you haven't already, and don't forget to install Norton next time :p
 
jos... the easiest way is to backup everything and reformat... that will get rid of the problem forever and makesure to install an anti-virus or something ;)
 
Yeah, and I'll say it again, update Windows right after you've installed a firewall and an antivirus. :D
 
that hitman is a different language..arghh its seems so good, but i cant understand a word of it!!!
 
its still in dutch..dunt they have an english version?
 
Well Jostie is dutch, so i don't see that being a prob.


And even if it is dutch, just click "yes" and everything is pretty much done for you. You'll have to agree to the eula's manualy though.
 
Panda ActiveScan is great, but most of the time it can't remove the threats. It's werth a try tho, I use Norton. If you want Panda just PM me :shifty: ;)
 
Well, HitmanPro is in dutch, but you actually have to click just on 'ok' and 'ja' and stuff like that. THe program does everything for you.

By the way: i also think formatting again would be better. Once I formatted my pc 3 times on 1 day because it didn't perform exactly the way I wanted.
Or else, do try the safe mode. (F8 before windows boots)
Try some other stuff too, like McAfee Stinger

good luck
 
I wish I could install Hitman Pro...If i click the page and click download I get a spam site, when I click Kips direct link I get a spamsite too..

Could someone send me the install file through msn?

Check my profile..

Thanks for all the replies guys :D

I'm reluctant to install SP2 because I heard that it may cause your windows to crash. Is it safe now?
The problem is there is no way that I can backup my ~280GB of data, so if it goes bad I'm fucked...

I don't have MSN but I could email it to you. (although my upload is very slow)
PM me if you're interested!

EDIT: Fixed a typo! :)
 
Don't forget to update and scan every week! You'd be surprised how many you still get even with Norton running.

I got a virus through a website that corrupted Norton. After that, I got a flood of nasty things on my PC. I had to reinstall Norton and get the Lavasoft program. It took a few hours to get everything back to normal.

Be careful out there!
