Unusual Computer Virus?

Well if your pretty good at computer stuff,Its alot like "WinFixer"

and if your not. Happy to Explain it. Its a virus that is unseen and undetected by most virus scanners only certain ones work. The virus is Mal-ware and installs itself and cannot be seen by the user. Its Pop-Ups that lie and try to say that computer has a

virus. It can open IE without the users permission.

And it spreads Mal-ware throughout the system until it is fixed.

Its is very annoying and controlling. I ususally can just run my Norton Antivirus and its gone but not that easy. My computer friends arent getting anywhere. Plus ive tryed spybot,spydoctor,AVG,vundo fix,and other programs. none work. Please help me with this issue and most of this stuff comes from WIKIPEDIA so. PLEASE HELP ME IVE EVEN CALLED SYMANTEC!!!!!

    Download the free version of A2Squard Free from Austria. This program finds malware, rogue dialers, spyware adware, keyloggers, trace spyware, tracking cookies, etc. etc. Updates are manual with the free version. http://www.emsisoft.com

    Try a online antivirus scanner and a online anti-adware/malware/spyware scanner in safe mode with network to clean up your computer BEFORE you download anything. This because the program you download can get infected.

    Disable "System Restore" for Windows Me and XP, then restart your PC to clean your system restore points for viruses, spyware, adware etc. http://www.microsoft.com/technet/community/en-us/m...

    Now restart in safe mode.

    To get in safe mode Press "F8" upon boot up.

    Select "Safe mode with Network".

    Go to Start - Run - type iexplore http://www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.html Enter(ok).

    Do a full scan of all your drives. If something is found, delete it, reboot and do the same again in safe mode with network.

    When that scan does not find anything you reboot again in safe mode with network.

    Go to Start - Run - type iexplore http://www.ewido.net/en/ Enter(ok).

    Do a full scan of all your drives. If something is found, delete it, reboot and do the same again in safe mode with network.

    **NOTE**: Do NOT do anything else with your computer when scanning. This because you can start virus/adware/spyware/malware manually.

    When no one of these scanners are showing anything you can reboot back to normal mode.

    Turn on "System Restore".

    ---------------

    Antivirus: BitDefender Online scanner - will scan and remove threats.

    Anti adware/spyware: Ewido Online Scanner - will scan and remove threats.

    ---------------

    **NOTE**: Only have one antivirus program and one firewall installed on your computer.

    Anti-adware/malware/spyware are ok to have more off.

    well im not entirely sure if you've tried this or if it would work but try a system restor to the last time you remember not having the virus.

    that sucks. that happened to my comp too. i tried all the anti virus things and like you, none of them worked. so i just reinstalled my computer. this deletes everything off your computer though, so you might want to back it all up
