I have a dilly of a virus...HELP!!!!!!!!!!!
I am running a fairly recent dell desktop.
Out of nowhere, something changed and now, whenever I try and download (or run) ANY PROGRAM IN THE WORLD I get a box when it hits 100% of the scan that says the file I was downloading contains a virus and has been deleated.
I have even tried to take the file (Microsoft essentials for example) on a thumbdtrive and load it to the C drive in safe mode. then when I click on it...yep, you guessed it...the same "contains a virus" error message and the file is deleated.
I did have security essentials running before and it is now gone. I also ran malwherebytes and super ad ware and neither finds anything but a few cookies.
anybody have a clue what I might have, or what I can look for and deleate in my registry. all I want to do is be able to download security essentials and then let it clean things up. ideas?? mucho thanks!
got it fixed (If you are have the same problem)
I copied my Microsoft defender file folder from my laptop, and copied it to the infected laptop using a thumbdrive and rebooted...this fixed the "cant download problem) then I downloaded a great antivirus program called hitman...ran it and all is good again.
