    In my machine I have a virus that starts pornographic pages and tries to install software to check my computer. Panda Antivirus was installed but I can not remove it, some one recommended www.eset.com install it (ESET NOD32 Free trial) but continued with the same problems, install Lavasoft (Ad-Aware) but according to detect and remove but continued with the same problem. Even I can not automatically update my Windows system. can help me?

    i would recommend running dr web cureit and superantispyware in safe mode.

    both are notoriously good at getting rid of hard to remove malware.

    1. Do a cold start into safe mode, then start scanning with your security applications.

    2. Don´t reboot, instead turn off your computer, i.e. cut the power.

    3. Boot into safe mode once more, run your security applications again.

    Now it should be fixed, but the best would be to wipe the disk with boot & nuke, and the reinstall your OS.

    EDIT: zopzop, I missed that you also mentioned booting into safe mode, making my post redundant.

    Restore a clean image, if you have one, probably not as usual. :ouch:
