HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Having REALLY big problems with my connection today. I just know there is a SHIT LOAD of Trojan virus's, but I'm unable to do anything about it.

 

As a result my computer is really slow and I keep getting pop-ups saying how vulnerable my compter is.

 

I did try this link Pud provided http://www.winsockfix.nl/winsockxpfix.exe but I still get the same result once my computer starts up again with the Address As 'about:blank' in my Internet options.

 

Please, please help! :(

i take it youve ran your anti virus software - a FULL SYSTEM scan? (that means every file on every hard disc)

 

what about adaware, spybot, hijackthis etc etc ?

 

do you have a program name or a virus name of whats causing the problems?

 

do you still have your windows installation discs?

I've ran adaware & spybot as a full AVG Free Virus Fault scan. I've ran other scans too after receiving pop-ups for recommened downloads where you end up having to folk out £30 quid to take care of them after doing a full scan. On one particular scan there were over 120 serious virus's.....quite worrying....!

 

I haven't tried hijackthis, but will now.

 

i don't have any installation discs unfortunatly. Trojan virus's seem to be the main identified virus's.
