With all the problems that we have with websites "pop-ups" why should we trust your reference at the beginning of these forums with "Suspect a malware infection (virus, spyware, rootkit)? Please start here. Tips to prevent infection.” I'm not trying to be the "smart ..." but "how can we trust you?" And by the way that is why I am writing you because now my computer continually reboots due to my clicking a "pop-up" regarding my computer was detected as having a virus." What can I do?

Hi - you are infected... But to clean it you must trust us. Now why should you trust us ? Well 'tis a fair comment, so I guess the only way is by you investigating the forum, looking at posts and seeing if we can actually resolve problems. Do we follow through to the end or just dump you when we are bored ?

My biased answer is that this is a trustworthy forum where you will get exceptional help :)

If you wish assistance with your problem then follow the steps outlined below. We only use free software and none of our tools are designed to harm your system

Download OTL to your Desktop
  • Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
  • Select All Users
  • Under the Custom Scan box paste this in

    %systemroot%\*. /mp /s
    hklm\software\clients\startmenuinternet|command /rs
    hklm\software\clients\startmenuinternet|command /64 /rs

  • Click the Quick Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
  • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
  • Post both logs


Download aswMBR.exe ( 1.8mb ) to your desktop.

Double click the aswMBR.exe to run it
