Please download Ad-aware SE
and install it if you don't have it already. Make sure it's the newest version and check for any updates before running it. Also go here
to get the plug-in for fixing VX2 variants. To run this tool, go into Ad-aware->Add-ons and select VX2 Cleaner. Then click Run Tool and OK to start it. If it's clean, it will say Status System Clean. Otherwise, you will have to click on the Clean button to remove the VX2 infection. Also make sure to customize
the settings in Ad-aware for better scan results. Run the scan and fix everything that it finds.
Then get HijackThis
. This program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Run the scan, save the log, but do not
fix anything yet. Many files it finds are harmless, and required for your system to operate.
Post your log in a new thread
in the HijackThis Log Help
forum. This our dedicated spyware/virus forum. One of the expert analysts there will look over your log and assist you. Please include a brief description of the problem you are having and what you have done to fix it so far.
