Hi, I need help removing a nasty virus I picked up. It will not let me open many applications including all of my anti-virus removal software. It says that that excecutable is infected. I'm not sure what to do. I would greatly appreciate any help.
I have also tried to download all of the applications that were reccommended on other posts where people had the same problem, but I was unable to. The second I try to open the installer the program is shut down by the virus.
Please help, I understand that my post is not specifically to the sites wishes but I can not install any of the programs you wish me to use. Every time I try I get a message that reads "Applications cannot be excecuted. The file wmiadap.exe is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus software now?"
Download OTL by OldTimer to your Desktop.
- Close all windows and double click OTL.exe
- Click Run Scan and let the program run uninterrupted
- It will produce two logs for you, one will pop up - OTL.txt, the other will be saved on your Desktop - Extras.txt. Post both logs in this thread.
- You may need to use two posts to get it all.
