    I was attempting to download a bit torrent file, when my pc froze up on me, and my wallpaper was supplanted by a white screen with a red, windows-style window with a red border which reads, "Warning! Spyware detected on your computer! Install an antivirus or spyware remover to clean your computer. Warning! Win32/Adware.Virtumonde detected on your computer. Warning! Win32/PrivacyRemover.M64 detected on your computer. Please activate your antivirus software to clean your computer." Rather than my screen saver coming on, the computer reboots, and I get a blue screen giving me instructions to fix the problem, yet I am just computer illiterate enough to know my limits and bring the problem to you! Help!!

    Click here to download HJTInstall.exe
    • Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
    • Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
    • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
    • Click on Install.
    • It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
    • Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
    • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
    • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
    • Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
    • DO NOT have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
