I can't take this anymore!! I have been trying to remove this nonsense from my computer all day long, only to find out my task manager has been disabled, I can not switch users (unless I restart computer), and I can not go to settings to access my Add/Remove programs option. What did my husband do? I have no idea. He feels bad as this was done on Friday afternoon and I can not get it fixed. Was he looking at porn? I don't know, I just want to get rid of this thing. This stupid VIRUS ALERT! message is next to my clock (which now seems to be on military time). There is a stupid wallpaper that says "Your Privacy is in Danger - Download Privacy protection software now" with a red background. I need a GeeK!!! Please help. :)

Hello, my name is fenzodahl512 and welcome to Geekstogo..

Please have a read at this topic and do all the preliminary steps given.

If you are using Windows Vista, or if you are using XP and already have Service Pack 1a or later, please ignore Step Three: Windows Updates and continue with Step Four: Reboot - Test

It should handle about 70% of your malware problem.. Should the problem still exist, please post a fresh HijackThis log here as shown in the Step Five: Posting a Hijack This Log.. Thank you :)

Regards

:) I guess the face says it all!! You are awesome. I love you! I went ahead and followed the directions on your post, I did not have to go through the HiJackThis steps and so far have not had any problems. Is there anything else I should do to make sure this is completely resolved?

Thanks a million!!!!!
