pc infected

  Star Lord 16:14 04 Sep 2010

about 2 days ago my pc got infected, my browser kept beig redirected.

I currently have AVIRA and Comodo Firewall, I have never had any problems. I ran a virus scan and cleared quite a lot. the browser is not redirecting as much. The problem I now have is

1) My Avira wont start when my PC is started and

2) I'm trying to run SPYBOT search and DESTROY or Malware Bytes and they will not open so i can not do a scan. not sure if this is the problem Hlq.exe it wasn't there a few days ago

If you can,... download SuperAntispyware to a pen drive, reboot and start in Safe Mode.

Then run SuperAntiSpyware from the pen drive.

Rename mbam.exe to something like happy.exe double click it to run malwarewabytes.

Fruit Bat

Thanks for that, just got it to open and I have done a data base update. At the moment I am running a check via House Call, soon as that is done I will run Malware Bytes, if nothing comes up then I will do SuperAntispyware. I will post back then. Might be gone some time
