I have been trying to remove some vicious malware from my laptop. Here is what I have done so far:
1. Tried to run online Bitdefender and RavAntivirus but they both failed. I am plagued by pop up windows that open on their own. Even when Internet explorer is not running, it starts running on its own. And now I have aurora as well on my laptop!
2. Then i ran McAfee AVERT Stinger. It functioned ok
3. Ran CCleaner. Functioned ok.
4. Ran Ad-Aware. Functioned ok.
5. Spybot - it freezes my laptop. Everything is ok until it reaches 63-/26237: Central 24. Then it says ther has been an EFOpenError and spybot will have to shut down.
6. Next I ran CWShredder, Kill2Me, aboutBuster, HSRemove. All worked ok.
7. Tried to run hijack this and post the log.but instead of going to notepad, it opens SAS on my comp - my edition of SAS has expired and therefore my comp shut down on its own and restarted after i ran hijackthis. So now I dont even know how to share the log with you!
please help if you are able to.
thank you in advance,
