Found Hijacker - now what?

Unread postby DebbyJenkins » January 4th, 2011, 12:46 am

My friend was having a problem trying to get a windows update to install.

I found "Pum.hijack.sta" on her computer with the Malewarebytes anti-malware scanner. It was deleted.

I also found that there haven't been any windows updates on her computer since 11/2009. It has had numerous Office updates, however.

I have not found any other infections using Stinger or AVG but I am still not able to update windows, even with the stand alone update.

I am suspious of the TrueSwitch Wizard because I wasn't able to uninstall it. (It was a program that she doesn't use.)

Thanks for your time, Debby
