I have a Virus

Post  [NWA]Hannes on Thu Apr 08, 2010 11:34 pm

Hello, The day before yesterday my friend and I was chatting on msn when he told me about a game, I wanted to try it, nothing big, so I went on torrent finder and downloaded the games installer.
When I later ran that installer (I thought it was game so I installed it ALL), my anti-virus said I had gotten a lot of viruses (It said about 5 viruses, Every minute!), so I went in task manager and exited some processes, then it stopped saying I had viruses and the virus itself stopped too. (The virus itself was a fake anti virus program that said I had viruses all over my harddrive)
Well, nothing more happened that day, but then the next day I started my computer, then when it logged in, (I only have one profile) Evrything was black.
I couldnt see the desktop, start menu or anything.
The only thing I could see was the mouse.
Then I tryed to start task manager (Ctrl+alt+delete) and I got a message: "Task manager has been inactivated by administrator."
And I couldnt activate it again because I couldnt access anything.
So I restarted my computer, the same thing happened, but this time I could open Task Manager (But only once), so I started explorer.exe to move some of my files to my usb memory (Which was gone, so I couldnt move files to it) and I didn't have a second harddrive neither.
So I shut down my computer and thought "Shit they gonna be mad at me when I tell them about this", then I went to my buddy because I couldn't play computer. (Well, what was I going to do then?)
So when I went to bed later that day I had a dream that if you pressed f4 four times it would fix this.
But when I woke up and tryed it I noticed it didn't work.

So, anyone has any ideas of what I have to do to get my computer working?
Or maybe I have to remove my harddrive and put into another computer?

I don't know, help me :'(

(This is why I can't keep server on, my computer is all messed up)

mw2 is a rip-off for now
seriously, who would pay $50 for a game that doesnt last for more than a week
gr8 storyline but still, $50!!!
and if you need another virus program use either Avira or MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials)
and if you are asking they are both free Very Happy

Like he would download a game then find out its some strange anti virus program (which never happend in my life) and install it when he can just download virus free anti virus from any site. ^^

Since no one here seem to believe me or to come up with any suggestions, I asked my uncle Bert which is an expert at computers and he told me to start the computer in "Safe Mode" by pressing F8 when the computer starts. (I already knew about safe mode but i forgot how to use it)
It worked and I can now access my computer files again Very Happy

Oh and btw ali your the one with the bullshit, my story was 100% true :'(

Scanning doesnt help because antiviruses cant read the script for the setup ^^

if you have some flash drives laying around, you could use clamwin portable to get rid of them:
http://portableapps.com/apps/utilities/clamwin_portable
requires no installation and runs with one click
but you have to know where the infected file is and select the file in the program -_-
