av suite

  conrail 13:19 10 Jun 2010

running vista home 64 bit, with ie8, I keep getting a message saying:
This website has been reported as unsafe
We recommend that you do not continue to this website.
This website has been reported to Microsoft for containing threats to your computer that might reveal personal or financial information.
Go to the antivirus home page instead
Ignore this warning and open this site
I get this even with this site, this takes me to an option to purchase av secutity suite,
I have avast, a squared, adaware and spyware blaster, which I updated and run the day before yesterday,
I am currently running them now but I also get porn sites opening randomly,
I also get a warning stating Spyware Alert, application in infected: The file rundll32.exe is infected, Do you want to ALLOW this application now? if I click on no or more info, I get the av security suite, the only security option I have turned off is user accounts, I also have a firewall and windows defender activated
all help and advice greatly appreciated

4) Click the Advanced tab.

5) Click the Reset button.

6) Put a tick in "Delete personal settings" & click Reset.

can I delete the file rundll32.exe or is it easier to use the restore option from my D partition?

Do you know how to do an sfc /scannow

if it will not allow you to open them go to Tools.Internet Options.Connections.Lan Settings and you should find that the virus has got proxy server ticked.Untick it Ok. Apply.Ok.
That should let you download malwarebytes or at least open the pages.
