Hi, I got a virus on my PC that shut down my McAfee program and zone alarm and put and ad on my desk top for a spyware removal program. It did several other things that were easier to get rid of as well. I reinstalled McAfee and ZA and they seem fine now as well as got my desk top back. But McAfee keeps telling me I have the New Poly win32 virus which it can't do anything about. The only thing I can tell is going on is my google searches (not any other search engine) always comes up with the same bogus first page of ads. And my PC seems a little slower. As well as McAfee won't stop tell me I have the virus...that's a good thing I know but at this point annoying. Each time it said that a file was corrupted like ahtun.exe I would delete it but when I rebooted it comes up in a new file so I stopped deleting files....D'oh! When I run Hijack This it seems clean other then ( Unknown file in Winsock LSP: c:\windows\system32\flsmngr.dll ) which it won't remove and I can not delete it even in safe mode. I'm at an impasse and could really use some help if there's a kind sole out there just waiting to help me out! :tazz:
