hi, I have a virus taking over and it is huge. I believe its in system 32. I really need help and appreciate your time and advice in advance. When I ran the "hijack this" program they told me the problem was too large and to go somewhere in the c drive to solve problem, But I'm not that great with computers
Thanks, Kristine

Hi Kristine.

You computer is in extremely rough shape. I'm afraid it has been totally compromised by numerous backdoors/RAT's(Remote Access Trojans) and a keylogger or two as well. So, security-wise, it cannot be trusted.

I hate to tell people this when they come to us for help... but your most prudent course of action may be to just cut your losses and format and reinstall Windows.

If you choose not to do this I will try my best to clean things up for you. But please understand I cannot guarantee the security of the system afterwards just because of the nature of the infections and what can be done with them.

Please let me know what you want to do.

Instructions provided here will help you. The site has pictures and walks you through the process step-by-step.

Of course... you won't be able to access the site once you've started the reinstall so you may want to print the instructions out first.

Once you have Windows reinstalled... I strongly suggest you change all passwords you've used to access the computer and any websites you use... especially if you've done any online shopping with a credit card or any online banking.

You should also contact your financial institution and make them aware of what has happened and the possibility of fraudulent transactions if you do use the computer for online shopping/banking. Keep a close eye on your bank statements/credit card statements for the next little while if you have.
