thx in advance
Anyways, totay i was downloading some files online and in the process my computer got contracted with spyware and virus.
the symptoms are
(1) random pop ups (mostly [bleep])
(2) computer system warning me that i contracted a virus and spyware, and when i click the icon it would lead me to websites like: http://www.thespyguard.com/?aff=103, http://www.virusburst.com/?aff=334, that claim that they got what it takes to get ride of the virus and the spyware. (none of which i used)
(3) a warning message that claims that my computer's internet connection is slower due to virus and spyware attack.
(4) maybe another message that said something about my computer contracted cyberlog-x. Not exactly sure but pretty certain.
My thoughts on the computer warnings are very cgypitical, as they seem to lead to websites that want to sell me stuff.
I tried scanning my computer files First with Norton (nothing was found) and then with spybot(several spywares were found and deleted), then the Cleaner ( several spyware unfound before were detected and deleted accoundingly), lastly i used AVG Free Edition.
With AVG I was having some trouble with. After scanning the files on my computer three horizontal catogories appeared in this order: Object, Result, Status. On some of the files the result says "Ok" while on other files it simply leaves the result section blank (which totally puzzles me, as i don't know what to do with the files. I tried right click and then ->disply item details, but nothing appeared). So what does the blank space mean and what can i do about files with this description?
any idea on what i should do about my computer crisis?
how can i prevent virus and spyware in the future?
