i dont know alot of computer jargon so try to 'dumb it down' for me

i get messages w/ a pig yelp sound that say winiguard has direct everad in the tray in the bottom right corner --i found out winiguard is "fake" so i tried to delete it and cant so thats the problem i think--i traced it to 'wininit' and it wuld not let me delete that so i tried to do it as an administrator and "crashed"

also i get messages that popup with a loud ringing that say i got low memory-possibly due to virus

also i get messages that my computer generates an attacking DOS requests at our servers caused by the spyware/virus named 'Troj/Rustok-N'

i downloaded several adware freewares (hopefully they didnt cause more problems) they mitigated some previous problems but i am still expereicng the aforementioned problems..thanks for the help!!!!

Hello,
I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
