Hi, I know that I have some Virses on my computer and I don't know what more I can do. I let a cousin use my computer while i was on vacation and I don't know if he downloaded something or what. But whenever I try to view a News Video or watch a Music Video while using my Yahoo Browser my Yahoo Browser freezes and then it closes everything and it says that it has something to do with my fltmgr.dll. Also I have PartyPoker icon shortcut on my computer and when I right click on it and look at the properties it says that it's on my desktop and when I went to look for it I couldn't find it anywhere, He said that he didn't download partypoker or any games so I don't know how that got on my computer. So I deleted the shortcut and everytime I reboot my computer it's there again.

So I did a Virus scan using my McAfee and it shows that I have 2 Adware on my computer, one is C:\WINDOWS\Nail.exe and C:\WINDOWS\systems32\msxct.exe and it said that it couldn't be cleaned or deleted. I know I have lots more on my computer but it's not picking it up. I think I have a BHO or something like that on my computer as well. I went to Microsoft and updated my windows, I just don't know what all I can do

Also whenever I reboot my computer my IE opens all the time, I don't know how to stop it.

I went to www.hijackthis.com and I didn't know what to download

Can someone please help.

Thanks

Howdy and welcome to G2G:

Please go to the malware forum in my signature and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
