xp virus

joe_mnJuly 26, 2011

2005 dell notebook has odd behavior. runs fine for awhile. online function is ok. than any key entry results in multiple "search" pop-up windows. about 1/2 of the keyboard keys do not function than. restart in safemode and all is well for awhile and than same popup issues start. thought it was 3rd party bug/software causing issue but it shows up in safemode. tried many cures, norton scan, avg scan, stinger scan. computer works on restart. am close to reinstall but wanted to hear if anyone else had any thoughts on finding virus.

you need to go to the forum I am going to link to they will assist you to run some special scans and take care of it these rouges are not ones that can be fully cleaned by any of the regular AV and antimalware programs.
go here, register, start your own thread in the area I link you to and follow only the directions from there for you so no conflicts or confusion.
