I think I got a virus, may be? Please help me.?
Question: I was online in windows live messenger and then a message from a friend come up "Have you got a picture of mine?", or something like this, with a compressed file coming. I downloaded it without notice anything until when I try to extract it. The percentage bar is at zero percent when I click stop, thinking it is too suspicious because the file is not the picture file. I think my computer is clean until someone in my contact list who work with me tell me whether I send something to her. She got same thing as mine and I tell her to click decline. Did my computer infected already? What should I do? I've scaned the computer with NOD32 2.7 Control center, not finding anything infected.

Perhaps one of the reasons it "slipped through" is because you have two anti-virus software installed. You can never do that. They will conflict with one another and cause each to be somewhat less effective. If you really want some help I will help you but you need to be more specific about the errors you are receiving. For example, you state no programs will open. Well that could mean alot of things. Do you receive an open with prompt or does the program simply not respond? Each are characteristics of malware but require different instructions and repair methods. Spybot was working like crazy to stop the changes?? That to me makes no sense. If Spybot detected it then how did it penetrate the computer. Elaborate a little more giving some real information. If you are able to get programs to open in safe mode click start > run (search for vista) type mrt.exe > ok. Choose a full scan.
Virus detected Ho serious any thing to do with so called virus hitting alot of computers today.?
Help what is this virus is called or named and which anti virus software can detect it and delete or remove it?
You really need to consider INVESTing in a proper security suite for your computer that includes complete protection (antivirus, firewall, antispyware, etc) from one RELIABLE vendor (like McAfee Total Protection or Norton 360) and ensure it is properly configured and kept completely up to date... as well as keeping windows updates completely up to date. If you had a properly working security suite on your computer it would've alerted you and most likely stopped that file from coming through. Now you will have to upgrade to a proper security suite and hope that you can remove the malware without any data loss or further manual removal steps. Make sure you get rid of whatever crapware you do have on the computer as your "security" first (if you have anything) and reboot. Good Luck
The Winlock virus will not delete it's self. It's a extortion virus. It comes bundled with spyware, Trojans, Really, Just all round Malware. It will eventually steal anything it can find on your computer. SS numbers,CC numbers, You name it. AVG is a joke. You could pee on your hard drive and get better protection. AVG "might" detect it. But it will not remove it. You can try this. No guarantees. Download and run rkill. Turn off AVG. It's useless anyway. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/anti-virus/rkill DO NOT RESTART YOUR MACHINE! Download malware bytes anti malware. It's free http://www.malwarebytes.org/ update it and run it after you run rkill. Delete what it finds. Download Hit Man Pro. Five AV engines working together. http://www.surfright.nl/en Update it, Run it. Cross your fingers and hope this gets it. You need a real AV. Not some kiddie AV. It's paid, But it's the best. Kaspersky internet security. If you are going to go to sites like that, You need a good AV. Most sites like that are attack sites. You go to one of them you are asking for it. If you had Kaspersky on your machine you would not have gotten this. Kaspersky is a Russian made antivirus. I've used it for 7 years. It's the best I ever had. (EDIT) Any one who will tell you that Kaspersky is a resurce hog, Is out right lying to you. AVG, Avast, Avira all use more memory than Kaspersky. You don't have to believe me if you don't want to. Get your computer cleaned out and see for yourself. Download any free AV you wish. Download you a free fire wall. Open up any web page you see fit. Open task manager and see for yourself how much memory it's using. It will eat RAM and slow your computer. Now delete all of that and go download the free 30 day trial of Kaspersky. Open any web page. Open task manager. See for yourself. Kaspersky uses less RAM and protects you better. Also, Be careful about people who will post links to all there best answers. A lot of times they have multible accounts. They ask questions with one. Give themselves best answer with the others. Lot's liers on here. Lots of people that have no idea what they are talking about. Be careful who you listen too. Learn for yourself.
anyone who tells you to buy a security suite such as Norton or McAfee should be fired on the spot ( would be if they worked for me ) there are plenty of free anti virus software out there such as AVG or Avast that run circles around the paid ones
First, Understand what "Quarantined" MEANS Quarantine Technology is a function of virus protection software that voluntarily isolates any infected files on a computers hard disk. Quarantine Technology protects these infected files from corrupting other files on a computer. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quarantine_... To uninstall Symantec you MUST use their uninstaller Tool http://us.norton.com/support/kb/web_view...
