Thanks in advance for any helpful soul available:
I have a Sony Vaio running Windows 7.
I was stupid enough to click through on a dodgy Hotmail message telling me that an old friend had left me a message on Wikipedia. I know that's not even possible but 'd had a beer and I wasn't thinking as I surfed. (Thought it might helo to know the origin.)
Since then, my PC has been afflicted:
When it boots I know have to select the Windows 7 operating system from a list with only that on it.
Cursor goes crazy - jumps to end of line and moves things around
Hard drive wheezes and gets hot
I've tried: OTL (have log but am not technical enough to correct).
HujackThis - I delete files (if the cursor lets me highlight them) and BHOs
MalwareBytes has not helped
Tried various others I can't remember.
Hiujack this says I might have a virus in the Hosts file but I don't know how to take action.
If anyone can help I'd be so grateful
I was so desperate that I reformatted the whole PC - wiped the lot - years of work (*fortunately I had clen back uos) - but the malware is still there.
Can anybody help? Thanks so much
