I have a malware program that i run to remove it, but it doesnt stop it. I got on it for just a minute and didnt click anything and had 3 or 4 trogens- malware. This has been doing it for a while to others, but dont hear anybody complaining now, Maybe they dont know or care?? just me I guess??

It probably downloads with the porn pictures. Stay out of the NWS forums and you should be alright.

Well, just going to YB and it coming up is enough for me to get infectected. MY Avg says infected and my A squared malware. My dad added a firewall and that didnt seem to help. I clean everything and check on weekly but its still there when i run a scan. I dont see both virus scanners being wrong. Its my dads computer and i dont want to fu$$ it up LOL.., ED

MALWAREBYTES.com is free and has worked for me. You can also use a program called killz to stop the virus from running if it keeps coming back.

Kasperky will stop any virus I have tried several AV and it is by far the best to prevent/stop them. AVG is good at detecting them but not good at stopping them. About the only other AV that comes close to Kasperky is F-secure which charter provides free to their internet customers it can be purchased though without charter internet service. AVG isn't bad with older OS's because it will tell you the file locations all you have to do is boot in safe mode and delete the files, but Vista is so complicated that it is next to impossible to locate the files. If a trojan worm ever gets through your firewall only option is to reboot the OS after you zero out the hard drive. Spend the money on a good AV! Sorry for the rambling.

There's a tech forum. You join, post problems. They'll have you run a program called hyjackthis and you post the results in a thread. They usually get back to you in a day or 2 w/ specific instructions and downloads to fix whatever's there. I've had success w/ them, and there are other forums out there that are similar.
