How do I make sure I got all viruses off of my computer?by spoogit on March 21, 2013
Q: Hey guys,
I have recently downloaded a program that has clearly had malware attached. At first it appeared to be adware as it would hijack whichever browser I was using and force it to Mixi DJ. I managed to clear this up with antivirus programs.
However it seems that I’ve got something going on almost consistently in the background. I’ve checked the task manager and nothing seems to stick out as odd. It’s really annoying in that if I try to type something (for exacple example a URL or into the start bar) after a few seconds I get bumped out of the window, like I’d clicked outside, thus interrupting my typing.
The antivirus’ I’ve used are Trend Titanium (which I had previously bought), Malwarebytes, Spy Hunter 4 and SuperAntiSpy. Trend and malwarebytes didn’t find any, and I know how these other less legitimate antiviruses tend to tell you they find more than they do to make you buy the upgraded version. I’m really worried because I don’t know what the virus is, but I assume its phishing so I won’t type any passwords. I’m sending this off my laptop.
Please help, I’m minutes away from just wiping all my drives and starting again
