Infection with alpha antivirus

Post by rognshirlc on 19th November 2009, 5:28 am

My computer is infected with the alpha antivirus which keeps popping up and stating that I need to go to their website, etc. I'm sure you've seen it all before. I've followed the message from Doctor Inferno and updated my Java, Adobe and Windows. I'll post the Notepad log now. Hijack This also said I had a lo of hijacked domainsin my files and that I may want to consider deleting my Hosts file but I haven't done that yet. Here is the log:

I downloaded the anti-malware and the screen pops up but then it closes spontaneously in a few seconds, without doing anything. Is there anything else I can do?

  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console


Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:
