So the other day My virus protection goes crazy and every 10 min or so a warning pops up saying that a rootkit is trying to load into my operating system. So I kept clicking on deny but then I start getting other warnings for trojan horses. Every time I restart my computer I get a message saying that my computer has changed, so I restored Windows to about a week prior to the messages. This seems to have fixed the problem but I still get the message that my computer has changed and the option to enter the bios. Should I backup my files and reinstall Windows?(I think I want to do this anyway) My other question is will reinstalling Windows fix the problem seeing as it seems that the bios has been effected as well?

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
