Thanks for looking in, Long time Zonelabs user, recently switched to Comodo for a year now.
I picked up a virus or malware. Comodo caught 2 of them and quarantined them. However the damage is done.
I have my Driver disc and Win install disc setting atop my desk. Although I did not want to have to (0 zero) out my computer to scratch.
My IE Browser when clicked Gives me a blink and does nothing. As though it opened and closed instantaneously. I went over to System restore to take my computer back 90 days. After going through its Himme Himme shake, I get a pop up says no Admin rights.
Been over to the start, run and made sure my admin rights are on, it is.
I have Comodo firewall and virus latest updates
Also running Comodo system Cleaner
Currently with scans says clean, but my computer is not fine
The virus it caught was:
I also installed SpyHunter 4 trying to track these things down. That found doubleclick.net cookie in my settings and documents. Could not find the proper way to remove manually. From what I gather it is a tracking cookie and even after removing it, chances are I will just get it again.
(I did 'just" instruct Firefox to NOT go to that site)
My Firefox works fine, but now when I open my hotmail I can see there is a browser virus that is "hanging out in there somewhere" My Browser is loading slower and I am waiting for that virus to implode or explode where I will get more and more Blue screens. (Currently enjoyed 2 blue screens)
I am running:
Dell Inspiron 530 which came with vista and I removed and replaced with XP home a couple years back
Service pack 3
My computer has been swift and virus free until about 90 days ago when I got a friend request from a forum through yahoo or it was in a zip file that Comodo said it caught from an E Commerce wholesale place. I did send the report to Comodo yet I cannot find any info on those two viruses above. As well as my pdf printer keeps getting removed and my printer installer is not working when i ask it to find my printer that I know the program is installed.
I hope this was descriptive enough for some help. I was thinking it was left overs from the damage the malware created. I wanted to uninstall IE 8 from my computer but that is not as easy as removing an installed program.
Regards and thanks for your help in advance
