Win PC Antivirus 2010

Post by paulsgirl on Mon May 25, 2009 4:49 pm

So I was just browsing around Facebook and checking my email like normal yesterday when my computer got really slow and the next thing I know there's a screen open that says "thanks you for installing Win PC Antivirus 2010". My life's been hell ever since. I spent hours yesterday trying to get rid of it to no avail. I'm not very computer savvy but I downloaded SpyHunter and other things like it. Turns out you can only actually use those programs to remove stuff if you pay and well I'm not putting my credit card number into a computer with a virus. Is there a sure fire easy way to get rid of this? Do I have to reinstall Windows? Would that get rid of it? Should I try backing up my files on flash drives or would the virus get in a flash drive too?
I have Windows XP if you need to know that.
Thanks in advance.

Hello paulsgirl, Please do the following:


Please download the current version of HijackThis from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

  • Double click and run the installer.
  • It will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis\hijackthis.exe
  • After installing, you should get the user agreement, press accept and Hijack This will run.
  • Select Do a system scan and save a log file. This will open a notepad file of everything Hijack This found, copy and paste it back here.
