    malware, computer help, help, help me (rhonda, anyone... bueller...)

    the virus i had fixed/gotten rid of, is back, yet i'm allowed to peruse using a different browser.

    i'm trying to follow these directions, because it's similar to how it was cleaned up earlier-I watched my friend do it
    http://www.ehow.com/how_4741166_remo...n-spyware.html

    the version of malwarebites on my pc that he had installed is not working (file infected by W32/Blaster.worm- which is what it says when I try to use anything, my regular browser, solitare, anything.) as instructed in the link's instructions, but I can't find a free version...


    meeeeeeeeehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

    ok, when i went here http://www.download.com/Malwarebytes...-10804572.html and attempted to dl and run malwarebytes, it is infecting the program before I can install the file. does that make sense?

    Yep, what you need to do is to boot into safe mode (F8) and then install the malwarebytes.

    Yep, what he said Make sure you update Malwarebytes before running it. That should work. Yikes..the win 32 virus. A crazy one indeed.

    Its said to infect something like 80% of the computers out there. A virus that size could cripple the entire country or something like that.

    that's what he did...

    but now I'm not aware of how to do that.

    any tips or things i need to know before venturing into safemode for the first time?

    Turn your computer off. Then start it, and press down on the F8 key. It will boot to a very basic desktop, no glitter, but you have all the functionality. Open your browser, download malawarbytes, update it, and run it while in safe mode. Run it again after you boot normal.

    When you start it and press F8, and it boots, it might ask you which type of safe mode or something, I can't remember. But one will be highlighted, and use that.

    Good luck.

    You can also run the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool by clicking on START, RUN and type
    "MRT” (without the quotes). Choose a Full Scan.

    Here is the link Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool in case you need to download.
