Ok, last Monday my laptop was hit with a dozen Genetic Trojans. A scan with Bit Defender got rid of most, but some it would not. So I took it to the shop and got it cleaned...so I thought.
Got it home today went to ebay, attempted to set up a new Paypall account and it gave me an error. I tried again and same happened. After closing the page, I restarted it. went to google search, typed in ebay. clicked on the ebay result and screen went blank as it loaded. In the address it said "adsnetwork". I was then diverted to another site about making millions off ebay :s I tried Myyearbook the same way and was taken to another advert site via "adsnetwork".
Computer shop guy said I had a Hijacker. I did a scan and I also had 3 Genetic Trojans in my System32 folders.
Whats going on? Was it cleaned and then hit again as soon as I got home? Or were they hidden deep and waiting.
Is there as a way to find and delete this Hijacker along with these Trojans myself?
I installed, entered safe mode, but the laptop ran out of battery and turned off...even though it was plugged in. And now it wont do much in safe mode until battery full...and even then it will just do the same. screwed huh?
Hi did it actually find anything when scanning and before it shut down.Now found this from a different thread maybe try the instructions even though your scan may have picked up different virus's. [ System shutdown initiated by NT Authority/system System must restart because DCOM server process launcher terminated unexpectedly", cancel the scan immediately and click next. Quarantine / Remove any Win32.Trojan.KillAV objects that are found at this point. Let the computer restart and the malware file should be removed after reboot. Perform ] Maybe worth a try.Or cancel the scan before you think it is about to cancel the scan again and if it has found anything remove them.And then maybe do another scan and see if it picks up anything else.The only other good program for removing problems is Superantispyware.I would keep trying with Malwarebytes but use Superantispyware if you cant remove anything. click here
