Ok firstly my apologies if this is the wrong forum. I am unable to provide you with a hijack this log because this nasty little thing has removed my dial up networking connections so i am unable to get on-line to post my logs and i presntly on another machine sorry if this cripples me before i even start!
I'm using windows XP and initially i was getting my dial up connection appearing on the screen constantly. Also my background changed to a web page that stated that my machine was infected and i should on a link that would run a virus\spyware scan for me. And also in the bottom right hand corner of the screen a red dot with white x appeared stating that my machine was infected. Ok i ran adware and eidow in safe mode and found a number of virus infected files which were removed. I restarted and immediatly the dial up connection appeared but my little red dot didn't. Now i fiound that it had actually removed my default dial up and wouldn't allow me to create a new one and i also found that my sound card had been messed with and could not be accessed. I am assuming that this all stems from the initial infection? Ok i have found a way to re-start my dial up networking but eventaully am gona need help with getting rid of this thing. know i'm no real help with out the logs but if i can get it running and connecting i'll post them straight away. Has anyone else experienced this problem and maybe hasd a solution? Many thanks in advance.
