This almost sounds like you have a maleware infection.
It almost sounds like the one that has been going around that claims to be Windows XP antivirus and that it found 450+ spyware infections (there is no such thing built into Windows XP).

I would suggest running SpyBot or Hyjack This to find out if you do have a malware infection.

    Reading this over again, I don't think you are doing anything wrong.

    You do have a malware infection.

    Most likely Zlob.

    This is a difficult infection to remove. There are tools that you can run, but most likely, it will reappear the next time you boot up your computer.



    The best choice at this point is to save off any important data (Pictures, documents, etc) format and reload the system. In the long run it will save time, and produce a better end result.



    You can do the format and reload by running your original setup disks, or your other option is to take it to a shop and have them do it for you.

Virus Troubles


1, get Real Anti Virus Protection. Norton or McAfee. 2 all is not lost. McAfee offer several solution in what they call Stinger. Norton will scan the computer before it tries to install and will remove your problem files as will McAfee. This is basically a bogus add someone clicked on that allowed it to install and until you get it gone it's going to keep popping those false adds up trying to get you back to the hack site that gave them to you to begin with. Download Stinger from McAfee for free and run it from a floppy or USB drive or Buy Norton and do the install. In fact, you could get the free trial and install that of either of these and they will clean your problem.

I run scans on my computer every day but McAfee pops up and says that my computer is at high risk for having a virus. I have Trend MicroVirus on my laptop already and I don't want to have to buy McAfee....


u have to choose which anti virus you want to use. Y? because having more than 1 anti-virus in your PC will result to slow in operation of your PC and conflict in your anti-virus. you have to uninstall one of your installed anti-virus. hope this would work for you

I recommend to instal McAfee VirusScan for Mac. McAfee VirusScan for Mac includes detections for exploits, viruses, trojans, worms, and spyware that threatens Macs, PCs, and Unix systems. On access scanning provides realtime protection while drag and drop scanning facilitates a quick check of newly downloaded files. McAfee VirusScan for Mac retails for approximately $37 per license with discounts for bulk purchases

What you need to do is go to download.com, and in the search box at the top, type in "Anti-Malware" and click search. The first program that should show up on the results should be Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. Download and install this program, then run it. Whatever it finds, let it remove.

A New problem I face with mcafee Antivirus 8.5.0.i


I agree. Re imaging or reinstalling the windows operating system seems like the only fix at this point since it seems like the anti virus isn't picking up the virus. Back up the files on an external hard drive and just reinstall windows.

Backdoor virus


raymar. The virus is probably still running when you scanned. Please run the anti-virus, ad-aware and spybot in safe mode.
This will get rid of it...
