Dell XPS 13 9370 (2018) review
I've had lots of probs with my pc recently. So i removed XP and reinstalled it, thinking it would help to start from scratch.
I reloaded AVG and all the other bits and pieces.
I ran a scan yesterday with AVG which came up with some viruses, mainly win32\PEPatch virus
there were 5 altogether don't know whether you need me to list seperately but here goes:
(infected with win32/PEPatch
(may be infected with unknown virus - MPH)
(infected with win32/PEPatch)
(infected with trojan horse IRC/backdoor/SdBot.FKS)
(not sure what this one is infected with)
So then I tried looking into removing Win32/PEPatch virus and found a search facility on click here
I did this and was shocked at what it found, I've copied & pasted the following from the report and I really don't know what to do, I'm not very clued up when it comes to technical matters & the bit that worries me is the 'dialler' being on there. I have no idea how it got on there and am worried, I'm going to end up with loads of charges or something. I don't really know how it works, but really could do with some help (in simple terms) of what to do next.
Also is it unsafe to keep using the net while all this is stuff is on there?

Thankyou, I'm just d/l that now.
When AVG found some stuff, it gave me options to remove to vault etc, when I clicked remove to vault it came up with a warning saying that it was system files or something and could basically make it worse, so i wasn't sure what to do.
So I should delete everything this d/l finds?
After running Ewido i would recommend going click here (Panda online scanner)
Also make sure you empty your recycle bin,turn off system restore/ reboot / turn on system restore
You will lose any restore points.
If all advice fails you,this would be your best route
Download Hijack this click here and post the log click here
This will help also... click here=
click here hopfully this will take you to the correct link,if not follow the link and click on How to clean an infected computer.
But i still say your best bet is follow the Hijackthis route.
