I managed to run hijackThis! (please ignore prev post)

Unread postby alikirton » January 27th, 2011, 11:22 pm


The malware infection I have is not allowing me to run any programs, I am just getting a warning saying "Application cannot be executed. The file HijackThis.exe is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus software now". (same message for everything I try to run) So went into task manager and stopped a couple of unusual processes, and managed to get Hijackthis to run its log scan. Here it is.

I went back to try to get it to run the uninstall list, but now I can't even open my task manager. Same warning.

i'm also seeing popups of porn sites, and spyware alert warnings. My web browser just gives me the message "Internet Explorer Warning - Visiting this website may harm your computer", and I cannot go to any sites.

Please help!

I see you are posting for help for a "Business" computer.

May I draw your attention to THIS topic, which you should have read before posting for help.

The section Posting for help for business machines explains why we do not offer help for such computers.
