Virus Many eeek

Last nite I was messing around & one letter went on several times.. I do that often. A popup came one which looked like the real thing & said if I would hold down the shift button a few seconds that would stop it. like an idiot I did that. I had to reboot to type again I has to reboot. It seemed OK except it seemed a little slower loading pages.
Then when I turned the PC on today the SuperAntispyware came on with what I'm showing U from a print screen.
I sure hope I am not in too much trouble on here.
It deleted them & I did another scan & it showed clean BUT avast won't work now. I have rebooted & everything. What can I do about it & why is it not working. I don't like being on here without a virus detector.

I sure hope I'm not in too much trouble..

HOW do I get avast to start working? I don't like going without anything. Could I have gotten the virus from holding down the shift key or could they have been false all along?

What do you mean Avast does not work? What is the error or what's going on with it.

RE: Virus Many eeek

in the bar next to the little monitor it has a X on it. I click on the icon & get
..insecure, your system is not protected.. when I click on the FIX button nothing happens.

RE: Virus Many eeek

What happens when you right click on it, what options do you get? Have you tried rebooting the computer.

RE: Virus Many eeek

Can you do this,

DDS is a program that will scan your computer and create logs that can be used to display various startup, configuration, and file information from your computer.

The program will also display information about the computer that will allow us to quickly ascertain whether or not malware may be running on your computer.

To use DDS, simply download the executable and save it to your desktop or other location on your computer. You should then double-click on the DDS.scr icon to launch the program. DDS will then start to scan your computer and compile the information found into two log files. When DDS has finished it will launch the two Notepad windows that display the contents of these log files. The contents of these log files can then be attached to a reply.

See link for download

Dar you need to make sure that your superantispyware has the latest definitions, and if you let it to remove those files you will need to uninstall avast then reinstall, if you just had it quarantine them you can go into the vault and restore them.
Before you do the avast make certain that you do have the latest definitions for sas.

That was a bad update on sas and caused some major problems.

RE: Virus Many eeek

Boy am I having problems..
I removed Avast with the uninstaller.
I downloaded it with NINITE. I had to go to the net to register. The icon on my desktop will not open so how do I put in the key if I ever get it? I registered almost an hour ago but haven't received it yet.I'm sitting here with no protection.
I have the paid version of SAS as I kept forgetting to update it. Right now I'm not very happy with SAS right now.
I hope I don't have to uninstall it to but mite have to.


 o
RE: Virus Many eeek

WHEW... I finally got Avast working.
It looks like SAS is OK. I sure hope they don't do something like that again.
From now on I'll let things stay in the vault..at least for awhile.
It sure is good to see that little ball turning instead of an X.
Thanks for the help.

you can always use Microsoft security essentials instead of avast. I always put things in the vault just for this reason.

Raven,
You missed my post just ahead of yours. After deleting Avast SAFELY & then reinstalling it everything is working.

RE: Virus Many eeek

MSE has gotten some bad ratings recently, so I'm removing it on my Win 7 laptop and replacing with AVAST which I have used for several years on my XP. Since I have SAS and Malwarebytes also, I don't really need a suite-type program anyway.
