New AIM virus or whatever
(Computer Help) Keywords: html, security, yahoo, google
T_T I was reading away messages and my brother's was about new pictures or whatever, so him being far away I was interested in seeing them. I believe the link was http:// www.TravisArket. com/photos. pif or at least something similar to it. Whatever you do, don't click on it! I ended up downloading shit onto my computer and now it's infected (at least, more than before). I deleted the files I downloaded earlier, scanned my computer with PestPatrol, Ad-aware, and AVG.. The first two detected some junk and I deleted it, while AVG didn't detect anything. I searched through recently modified files and deleted what I believe was the AIM away message crap. However, even after deleting it I still have the problem (I think). Does anyone know what I'm talking about? This is aggravating. How do I get rid of this?
Ooh ok, so now it's just randomly but frequently putting up away messages now. It says, "NEW PICS FROM THE BEACH http:// www.TravisArket .com/photos. pif !!!!!" =(
Also, I've discovered that I now cannot view my processes, memory, and the other stuff alt ctrl del does. Every time I try to open it, it closes after about one or two seconds. I tried searching for more information about this on Yahoo and Google, but apparently my textboxes aren't working. I keep receiving the error message "Your current security settings do not allow you to send HTML forms." I know that I had not recently changed any settings whatsoever.. I do believe that my cookies have now been disabled, or at least on Yahoo, cuz I've just been logged out and cannot log back in due to "disabled cookies." =(
Edit: New fake URL at the domain of softhue.com, same ending though.
