I know just enough to be dangerous, but I somehow got a trojan spyware/adware virus that I can't get rid of. It's setting my home page to about:blank and won't let me change it. Plus I get at least 3 pop-ups every time I click anything on the internet.
Norton anti-virus detects 47 problems, but can't delete any of the corrupted files. It's even messed with google, no matter what I type it brings up results for "free adware software!" and only shows me one page of results. :mad:

Any computer guru that can tell me 'click this and you're fixed you idiot!' will be my hero for the month of July. :)

I actually tried that. It sits on the download page and does nothing. I think the trojan blocks me from downloading anti-trojan stuff? :confused:

What OS is this? I usually boot into safe mode and then either go into the registry or the startup folder and remove anything that got added there. Then remove the associated file and reboot.

Throw your windows machine out the window and buy a Mac, sissy.









j/k, Ad-aware would be your best bet. If you can't download it off Ryan's site, I'll burn a copy of it onto a CD for ya.

Now that you have adaware, try spybot. Seriously works. It will boot up before anything else on your computer does and will kill them. Spybot search and destroy.

Good luck with your computer. Don't get a Mac. Don't do it. :D
