That's not a computer, it's a Mac. Stick to what he's talking about.

Technically a Mac is a computer :whistle:

I honestly don't even bother with stuff like that, when you got viruses making random things open, slowing you down, turning off your computer and basically wreaking havoc... running tons of virus scans / malware scans / waiting for user replies on forums is just too much god damn work when it can all be fixed in a 20 minute reformat. Then you know you are 100% virus free, and your computer will be basically as fast as it was when you got it. Your computer will thank you in the end, nothing like starting on a fresh page.

I know, but if your entire marketing campaign is based on making sure your product is in no way affiliated with a Personal Computer, it's hard to turn around now and say it's a computer. ;)

I spent three hours today getting rid of a rootkit, a copy of Antivirus 2008 Pro, and fourteen trojans on a borked WinXP machine. It was actually a lot of fun taking it from a regedit-disabled, file browsing-disabled, task manager disabled, dns-hijacked state into a working computer, with Symantec Corp, Automatic Updates, and Spybot S&D. Just saying that it can look bad, but nothing's impossible.

I don't know if you have got the problem taken care of or not but if you have then I hope the following will help.

Do this on a working PC.

Download Dial-a-fix

http://wiki.lunarsoft.net/wiki/Dial-a-fix

Download Smitfraudfix

http://siri.geekstogo.com/SmitfraudFix.php

Download Sdfix

http://downloads.andymanchesta.com/RemovalTools/SDFix.exe

Download Combofix

http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe

Download the following from Malwarebytes.org

http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

http://www.malwarebytes.org/rogueremover.php

Copy the files you downloaded to a usb flash drive or CD

On the infected PC, copy these files to the hard drive. I usually make a folder called fixme, C:\fixme, and run the file from there.

Start with Dial-a-fix. When it starts up it will list any policies in place that keep you from using the task manager or regedit. Remove whatever it finds.

Next run smitfraudfix. If it doesn't open, rename it from smitfraudfix.exe, to smitfraudfix.com. Now try it again. You make have to do that for sdfix and combofix as well.

Next run sdfix and then combofix

Once those files have run and fixed the items they found, in normal mode you should be able to install and run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Rogue Remover

After that you should be running normally again.

One of the best tools I have found is Spybot Search and Destroy- Especially when you enable the Tea-Timer.

That and add their host file to your host file.

That and Firefox For me for browsing the web.
