Malware warnings every time I start up

  edenworkshops 10:38 30 Aug 2010


Increasingly over the past weeks I have been getting warnings from my "Avast" anti virus program.

I have put up a page which shows some of these warnings, with a view of my anti virus chest.

Oddly, I have a copy of Malwarebytes anti malware software, but it will not run when I click its .exe.

My PC is running ok apart from these constant warnings.

Thank you

I have a problem.

The copy of Malwarebytes I spoke of.

I tried to uninstall it, but it would not uninstall.

I went to the folder in Program Files to see if there was an uninstall.

But as soon as I opened the Malwarebytes folder, the screen went blank, to return a few seconds later.

I dont like what happened, very suspicious, but I don't know enough to know what to do.

Try running malwarebytes in safe mode(by tapping f8 at boot up)If it stil doesn't run see if it will uninstall from safe mode.Download a fresh copy of malwarebytes click here and rename the mbam.exe file to something else. Download revo uninstaller and uninstall it with that click here

I downloaded Hitmanpro and did a scan, it found a trojan horse and a worm.

I also set my Avast anti virus to do a boot scan, it picked up a trojan horse.

I have just uninstalled Malwarebytes with no problem, I don't know what caused Malwarebytes to give me the problems it did.

Has anyone seen the page I put up?

What do all those .exe files on the left of the picture of the virus chest?

Thank you.
