Unexplained computer behavior may be caused by deceptive software
I''ll bet you dollars to doughnuts that you've got a Vundo infection,
accompanied by ZLOB and SDBot infections, all protected by a rootkit. No
anti-virus or anti-spyware application alone is gonna fix this.
Run a /thorough/ check for hijackware, including posting your hijackthis log
to an appropriate forum.
Checking for/Help with Hijackware
When all else fails, HijackThis v2.0.2
) is the preferred tool to use.
It will help you to both identify and remove any hijackware/spyware with
assistance from an expert. **Post your log to
, or other appropriate forums for review
by an expert in such matters, not here.**
If the procedures look too complex - and there is no shame in admitting this
isn't your cup of tea - take the machine to a local, reputable and
independent (i.e., not BigBoxStoreUSA) computer repair shop.
