Please follow all of the steps in this section of the Malware Forum. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in the Malware Forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum. Should you post in that forum please do not respond to your own topic. Our Malware Staff look for topics to help out in that have no responses. The Malware Forum is very busy with many more requests for help than we have volunteer helpers, so please be patient. If you have not had a response to a topic after 3 days then please go to the Waiting Room and read the pinned topic for instructions.

Hi, when i turned on my laptop today, everything was fine, then as it was loading, windows explorer shut itself down. I didnt even touch it. Now my laptop does not have a start menu, desktop shortcuts, nothing. I dont know how to do anything and i cant even start firefox or anything.

It wouldnt let me post a new topic, but i was searching on google, and i found this http://www.geekstogo...se-t168119.html

Pop-up stops computerMy home computer started telling me I was infected with spyware and needed to install a firewall. It was supposedly from 'MS service'. It changed my background color and the message wouldn't close until you went to their 'MS compatible spyware service center'. I restarted in Safe Mode and it even popped up there. It tells me I have "Trojan.Win32.Midgare.Iwg" I shutdown the computer and it sits waiting. Is this another of those obnoxious scams where they are trying to MAKE you buy their product? What can I do. I am running WindowsXP Service Pack2, Home edition. Cox internet with McAffee provided. HELP!!!

I am new to this forum and I have vundo trouble which I am currently trying to fix with vundofix.. I want to follow the instructions on the page where the admin guides ppl to (for 70% removal), but am not sure if the instructions are applicable in today since that post was created in 2004. I am not doubting your help, but just making sure before downloading. Dont want to download programs which were up-to-date then and possibly not anymore..
I will respond how vundo fix goes, i guess i will need to try other things too..
thank you

Follow that post

The topics like that are updated constantly as malware changes, so it still holds true. Its not actually four years old :)
