Jesus christ, I'm worried, Pit.

My computer keeps coming up with antivirus warning messages. It's stuffed with viruses, worms, spyware... a bunch of stuff.

I URGENTLY need help. Please link me to a program that I can download, that can clean out this crap. Thanks.

Is it that Norton Anti-virus trojan....? Yeah that's a mission to clean up.

Also if you were Matt Bellamy's protege you wouldn't need Pit's help.

reformat your pc.... you'll loose alot of stuff unless you back it up, but it's the most certain way to get rid of everything

If you take a jar, and whisper what you want to hate into it, then close the jar, coat it in crunchy peanut butter, and shove it up your ass. I'm pretty sure you could hate everything after that.

Download Spybot Search and Destroy. Run a scan.

If the results come up as the virtumonde trojan, have fun.

Awesome album.

Oh wait, we're talking about computer viruses?

There are some programs which exaggerate the actual risk. Try a scan with one of the professional antivirus programs, see what that brings up.

Are you sure it's not that trojan that appears to be a microsoft antivirus scanner, claiming every 5 minutes that your computer has been infected, and that you should buy the full version?

Chances are you have a rogue AV on your PC. Did you download any Video codecs lately? or anything from torrents/P2P?

If so, there's probably a few Zlob and Vundo/Virtumonde Trojans screwing around with your PC. God, oh god, I hope it's not Virut. That basically means you're ****ed. end of.

You have two options -

1) Download Ad Aware, Spybot Search and Destroy, run them both, remove the files, reboot in safe mode, run them both, remove the files, repeat until they're all gone

or

2) Format and reinstall your OS. That's what I do - keep my files i wanna safeguard on a seperate drive and just wipe the C: clean for these reasons. It's too much of a pain in the ass to get ridda' all that crap anymore.

Maybe the reason its so stuffed with viruses is because you keep downloading stuff?

How can people be so stupid? I see at least 3 threads in The Pit about Virus help. Don't people know how to avoid them or how to contain/get rid of them?
Go aw' mighty

Now that I have ranted; I think a complete reboot of windows will have to do. Or run as safe mode and run some anti virus software

Take my advice. Get your data off the PC if possible, then go to the Apple store and buy a Mac.

Yeah, not helpful. You CAN get viruses for macs, you know.

Look up spybot, download it and run the scan and then download 'malwarebytes' i think those are the names but i dont know if there are new versions etc. Of course these arn't anti virus programmes as such but they got rid of a lot of crap from my PC.

Dicks man, I had one of those earlier this year, and one of those Vundo ones. What do they do?

I just read upon Virtumonde, that made me **** bri/x/. The worst I've ever had was SearchGlow. =/

Anyway, AVG fixed that, so maybe, if your lucky, you have that instead? (It's of the same nature.) So d/l AVG and run it and kick some ass.

Well, after reading about Virtumonde... turns out that's what I had a few months back. Had to re-install Windows two times because that ****er came back somehow.

Actually, that will just destroy your monitor. He had nothing to do with this.
