no problem, tbh if you'd rather not reinstall then Malwarebytes is your best option, i personally go nuclear on the rare occasions i get infected just in case, but im cautious like that

The weirdest thing happen. I uninstalled AVG and suddenly everything works again! But i'll still install Malwarebytes in case something goes wrong. Thanks for all your help again. I'll keep in mind not to go to suspicious websites

Look at the attachments below

see what i mean?

Also, don't think its vista... Its just a theme called Vista VS to make Windows 7 look more like vista

Only way to be sure you've completely reversed the damage a virus has done is to wipe clean and reinstall, especially if you're talking multiple viruses. I STRONGLY suggest you stop using Internet Explorer. Explorer has more holes than swiss cheese, and is like an open invitation for a virus to come walk right in. It's also pop-up city (Talk about annoying). Use Mozilla Firefox instead. It's much safer.

bear in mind that the free version of Malwarebytes is on demand only, (you have to do a scan if you want to find anything, its not real time) i would personally also get a real time AV like MSE, and use malwarebytes maybe once a month in case it misses
anything, http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

well no i wouldnt... but i mean that is what i would do after id wiped it, but you probably won't

I do use Mozilla Firefox. You suffered alot from bugs of IE8 like I did, didn't you?

As a previous AVG user, I have to say it has horrible detection rates. Avira was tested to be Amon the highest-ranking AVs out. And MSE is also a good choice. Simply put, your current A/V is not adequate protection.

Actually, no it is not safer. There is one key aspect that Firefox does not do, that IE does. Granted this won't stop user stupidity but it stops automatic catastrophe. IE runs in a super low privileged sandbox making any attack on IE unpractical, the moment you close IE the damage by the attack is cleared away without a trace. Firefox has no such protection.

Granted this sandbox doesn't work if you foolishly run with permanent administrative rights.

Also, Firefox has it share of security holes just as much as IE. Just last week two security updates bumped the version number up another two notches.

I've seen alot of good reviews about AVG, so I thought I would try it out. Basically, The only good review I ever seen is if you've bought a full Version of AVG. Same as norton too, but alot more people support AVG
