Okay first off let me start by saying yes I have seen the forum about winfixer but that is helping another guy and I can't understand it. Okay it all started when I reformated my computer then when it first got back ot running normal I had not turned on my spam blockers and spyware and anti-virus and things of the sort well this pop up notice would say "would you like us to scan your registry for free?" and i would click no and then it started "installing" which I did not have any clue about this at the time this was the first time i'd ever seen it so I was looking at the box and i saw it has no status it doesnt even say any bytes and then the time left is just counting how long its been on like when i first start up my computer it says 0 then counts to minutes and hours so then thats when i downloaded super ad blocker and it did a scan for me and i found out it was a trojan so this was about 3 days ago and i have been running mcafee and super ad blocker everyday and it says it deletes them and i went into windows and deleted those files but it is never gone and everytime i turn my computer on its there again and now i am getting messages like "fatal error is emminent please back up your data and replace your hardrive" can anyone please help me???[/B][/B]

$NtUninstallKB828741$
$NtUninstallKB835732$
These are just in C:
$VAULT$.AVG
Python22
hp
system.sav
Ive never seen them before I don't know what they are??? on the $ntuninstall... things I deleted 58 from WINDOWS yesterday just to the recycle bin and out I don't know if mcafee or super ad blocker's scan would have picked them up or what?

Your best move is this

http://www.geekstogo...-Log-t2852.html

It has a list of links to programmes, run them then post a Hijack This Log to the malware forum and you will be shown how to clean the PC, which is not toast, but not much good to you at the moment.

Ok this is what you need to do, and please dont ignore Kieth, cause he has told you this twice.

You see how at the top of this page there is a heading saying:

Do you suspect a malware (Spyware, Virus, Trojan) infection? Please Start Here.


Click on the Start Here link, read and do what it says.

And as I said at the top of the post, please dont ignore the staff again. There here to help, and you are asking for help.
