Hi guys, I'm very new to this forum
Today, I went onto a website that I go on normally, and it somehow installed something onto my computer while the browser was open. It was something like Malware Protector 2008.
I ended the process which was like "s230saldfj;alskdf" and deleted the folder in my program files, but I still cant change my background/screensaver by going to properties.

I changed my background and restarted, but it just went back to the WARNING MALWARE DETECTED thing. Ill provie a screenshot.

Hello Zaknifein...

Please go to the Malware Forum and follow the instructions found there.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself...then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum. Be patient, the Malware Forum is a very busy place and a two or three day wait is not unusual. DO NOT REPLY TO OR BUMP YOUR OWN LOG. If it shows a reply it may be overlooked as one that is being worked on.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.

Sorry. Added same info because I didn't see the previous post. Hate this new style of showing posts on a page as they show up way down out of sight. :)
