Computer Virus? - Page 2

post #11 of 20
well that link will give him access to loads of free AV's he can try one will pick it up if their is something thier and he may find out that he has others lurking as well so best to go for a clean sweep.

Yeah that is true that CCleaner would get rid of the registry entry but often viruses/spyware are cleverer than that and if you delete the registry entry upon reboot you find it back again and the viruses core files will keep on remaking it if it gets deleted, an antivirus will delete all registry entries AND core files connected to the virus.

seconded for Kasperesky, never had a problem since i've been using it and on the very odd occasion when i've gone to an infected site, kaspersky has blocked it.

i did a system restore since it lags as hell to get into windows to install another antivirus. Then install nod32, and clean it out.

I forgot what its called but its nasty!
