Windows 7: My PC is infected!

My PC is infected!

I've tried to find these things and delete them.
But I have at least two I can't get rid of.

One of them is a "PC CLeaner"

Another is some problem in ITunes saying its not for my new W-7....but it always was good till this other thing came along.

The PC is doing something else when I want to search. Or type.
It's lots worse with FireFox. It keeps telling me to get the latest FF Download.

I'd bet I'm not the only guy on thses boards that would go to prison for what I'd do to one of those Virus writers if I ever had some time with him.

I hope somebody can help.

Do you have a anti-virus program? If not, go here, download, install, and run this anti virus and let it scan for items:

Then also download, install, and run this malwarebytes program:

Nope you're not the only one. Try running this : Junkware Removal Tool Download

I go to Cullman every year by the way.

I started the AVG (which I already had) and this came up almost forcing me to run it.:

Don't run that!

I don't know what it is but I cant get rid of it.

Try the Junkware Removal Tool I linked to. It should work.

I think I tried them all at the same time.
It's after my bedtime. Doc and Therapy to morrow. I'll be back after that.

I'm still stuck with something that wants to clean my PC.

Hi thudpucker

Download and run RKill (google it and it will take you to its download location Bleepingcomputer.com) , this stops malware running, then download Malwarebytes and run, Both are free and work well.

Malwarebytes : Free Anti-Malware

After the above is done download the scanners already provided run the full scans using Safe mode with networking, one at a time of course,
Then reboot in normal startup and repeat the scanners,
Post any scan reports created by the Junkware removal tool/ Malewarebytes/ Superantispyware,
Cheers.

Have you ever been infected?
Yes. During the years of IE6 we used Norton. It was regularly finding viruses/malware until we switched to Firefox. We switched to AVG. It found at least one threat my dad had downloaded. We tried ESET and I downloaded a program that 1000s had downloaded and a few said it was clean. It seemed to...
