    If it keeps downloading stuff, try to disconnect from the internet (pull the cable) and work from there. And give nod32 a try. That thing found stuff on my PC other programs didn't.

    Its a good program really. I'm going to get the full version. Much better than everythign I've tried before.

    PS offtopic: Crazy, I jsut saw you sent me a PM, you have to wait a couple of hours till I can answer it BECAUSE the company content filter won't let me access it o_O

    lol its no big deal man i just left a wall post :roll: no big thing that and from the looks of things not be further off topic it would appear im stalking you on TPU :toast:

    back on topic i had nod32 once and i miss it every damn day of my life since im just 2 cheap to buy an AV program thus i stick to crappy AVG free

    if all else fails u may have to go to the Hijack this forums and run Hijack this with there help your pretty much assured to get rid of what ever is plaguing you just have to be willing to follow the steps they give you

    nod32/kaspersky are the two big AV's these days.


    because i am just THIS GOD DAMNED AWESOME, i have downloaded the file for you, renamed it (so the scanner wont know what it is) and uploaded it to a website the virus shouldnt block.

    way to go Mussels there needs to be like a most helpfull moderator button so at the end of the year we can see who the most awesome mod is altho i think it would be mussels anyway since he mingles with the average TPUers more often then not

    thanks mate. good plan i downloaded nod and it wouldnt fully install :wtf:

    i still havent got rid of it , last place it was hiding was C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Local/temp the gipsy it redirects me from tpu and other websites but avast stops it most of the time , but i still dont like it on here.

    if anyone else gets the media pass ,disconect your cable straight away and try stop the process in task manager before i does its work.

    Hmm wouldn't fully install you say... say, I don't know if it exists, but does nod32 have a portable verison? Meaning you can put it on a thumb drive, plug it in and just execute it without installing anything? If not, try googling for a destroyer/antivirus program that does. This might be a solution prior to wipe everything. Because if the virus or whatever you caught migrated into a file you want to back up, reinstalling Windows would lead to nothing.

    And Crazy change your avatar ffsake, it creeps me out :laugh:

    But but but :(

    Well yeah a reinstall is the easiest and safest way but if it can be avoided, why not try to.

    ok i got nod installed this time (thanks mussels) but it wouldnt let me open any website? is it just extremly slow because its filtering everything?

    it doesnt really matter as long as i gets rid of it. i had to uninstall it to come back on nd write this my electric ran out in the middle of scaning so i will reinstall now and retry . still getting the odd popup . i did delete everything in that temp folder . + reinstalling not on option atm il get another hdd to back everything up first.
