I'm new to this website, and to pc viruses in general, so I'm in need of some help. I want to preface my post by saying two things: Firstly, my problem was the red background saying "privacy in danger" and my clock being in military time saying VIRUS ALERT! I couldn't access many of the start menu functions or any local hard drives--the whole works. Secondly, I have taken every necessary step I've read about before posting. I followed the tutorial for combofix, I downloaded and ran ATF-Cleaner and ERUNT along with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, etc. I have saved the logs of combofix, hijackthis, and malwarebytes.
So, through all of this I've made tremendous progress but there's still just a few minor problems that I was hoping to receive some help with. My internet is working again and everything seems to be fine as far as the background and the virus alert message. The only things are that the clock is still in military time and my desktop icons still have a dark blue outline to them. Other than that, though, all of these steps really seemed to help me. So, I'm asking for some help on where to go from here regarding the icons and the time, and what further steps to take following the logs. If someone could respond and tell me which log to post I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks so much to anyone and everyone for their help!
