When i started Windows this morning I've got a pop-up message titled "Windows security alert" with the following content:
"Windows has detected an Internet attack attempt...Somebody's trying to infect your PC with spyware or harmful viruses.Run full system scan now to protect your PC from Internet attacks,hijacking attempts and spyware!Click here to download spyware remover for total protection."
Immidiatelly after this,the IE opens with the adress of some site called <http://softwarerefer...jI6Ojg5&lid=2>.
There is a red cross kind of icon in my system tray and after every minute a trigger pops up a message window on my screen asking me to go to some other website like <http://www.udefender...=&lndid=15&p=1>
Pleas tell me if you know what kind of virus is this and how can i get rid of it. I need help immediately.
I am really very annoyed from all these pop ups coming up and not letting me do my work. :whistling:
Please help

Download a copy of HJTInstall.exe from here and save it to your Desktop
  • Double click HJTInstall.exe to begin installation.
  • Accept the installation location, which by default is C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis or click the Browse... button if you want to chose somewhere else and then click Install
  • Once HJT has installed, a shortcut will be created on your Desktop and HJT will run automatically.
  • You will need to accept the EULA, if it appears, to be able to use the tool.
  • When HJT opens, click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button.
  • When HJT has finished scanning, a window entitled "hijackthis.log" will open - when you close this window the log will be saved into the hijackthis folder.
  • Copy and paste this into your next reply.
Also, run HJT and click on Open the Misc Tools section.
  • Click Open Uninstall Manager...
  • Click Save list... and save it to your Desktop.
  • Copy and paste the file uninstall_list.txt into your next reply.
