Anti-Virus Take over

Unread postby raider83 » August 11th, 2010, 8:17 am

I'm running a Windows XP computer. An anti-virus malware got on the computer and now is popping up all the time telling me I'm unprotected, etc. I do have Norton Anti-virus on the computer and I have run a full scan and Norton found some problems and promply fixed them. Below is the Malware log & uninstall log I ran:

Due to a lack of response, this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Malware Removal forum, include a fresh HijackThis log, and wait for a new helper.
