I'm 100% confident someone picked up the Koobface worm on facebook on my PC. My anti-virus (NOD32) Has caught it according to the logs, however I am still having the google link-to error (google results give me HTTP erros, and then take me to "finditand.com" .... there is a whole thread on Geeks to Go about what to look for in the Hijackthis log and how to get rid of all the malware etc.
Here is my current issue - on the "You Must Read This Before Posting A Hijackthis Log, Malware Cleaning Guide" step 2 is creating a backup point - by running the SysRestorePoint.exe program - however, when I try to run the program (unzipped on my desktop) I get the following error:
SysRestorePoint.exe - NET framework Initialization Error To Run this application you first must install one of the follwoing >NET framework:
Contact your application publisher for instructions about obtaining the appropriate version of the .NET Framework
Additionally - for reasons I'm not clear on (tho I suspect someone tried to 'clean up' my PC the only IE I am able to open from my start menu/desktop is IE (Add-Ons Disabled) - and the "Manage Add-Ons" section of the Tool Menu in IE is un-chooseable.
Oh my - how worried should I be? I'm in the process of trying to find the original install disks for this computer to try and re-install IE where I can get add ons.
Thank you so much in advance.
