Question about Acer Aspire One AOA150-1405 Notebook
Okay so I currently realised that i had a problem when I got a bubble popping up about antivirus. Turned out I had Advanced Antivirus Removal trojan in my computer. I downloaded Anti-malware and the icon for this virus has disappeared along with its annoying bubble, it seems to be gone. However, one problem that happened at the same time as it is persisting. Every time I try to get onto Facebook a screen pops up saying it is a restricted site and that it is restricted based on your security preferences. It then says your system is infected. Please activate your antivirus software. (all this on a deep red and black page) I never restricted it and it isn't listed as restricted in my Internet Options Security. How can I fix this?
The easiest way to fix this problem is to 1st open a command prompt.
To do this if you have Windows XP, click on the start button, then
select "run", then type "cmd" and finally hot the "enter" button. If
you have Windows Vista or later, click on the start button, then type
"cmd", then hit the "enter" key.
Once you have the command window open, type the following:
"netsh winsock reset".
Now, reboot computer.
The Facebook, Myspace, Youtude, etc., error should be gone, unless you are still infected with malware. In that case, install and run malewarebytes' anti-malware and repeat above steps.
The problem happens because the malware installs a filter in the Windows operating system called an "LSP" (Layered Service Provider). Issuing the above command, netsh winsock reset, resets the various LSP's to their default state (before the malware corrupted them), as well as the layering order.
The LSP that one of the fake antivirus programs installs is contained in a file called c:\windows\system32\helper32.dll. After resetting the LSP stack, you should delete this file.
