Windows Warning Message - Spyware detected win32/adware.virtumonde
I am new at most of this but have searched and tried to enter safe mode but It will not let me do any thing in any log on to windows, I copied someones post from a few weeks ago. here it is


Booted it up this afternoon and after logging on all i got was a blue screen with a window "Warning" Spyware detected on your computer"

It says i should install an anti-virus or spyware remover to clean up my computer"

Then lists two warnings, win32/adware.virtumondo and win32/privacyremover.m64 as being present on my computer.

It won't let me do anything.

I've shut the laptop down and re-booted but same thing happens.

Doesn't even give the option of restarting in safe mode. I cant see anything. On the other log on names ( My family) it just goes to a dell desk top but nothing else. no start bar or anything. When i hit Ctrl alt Del nothing shows up in the box.

You will need to remove the hard drive, put it in a external USB hard drive enclosure, connect the enclosure to another PC with good AV software, and clean the drive of viruses.

Put it back in the laptop and hopefully it will boot, but there may be damage to the OS that will have to be addressed. Re-run your AV software after it boots into windows.

I also recommend using these two scanners on that drive after you get it to boot.

:confused:Don't understand about the external usb drive? I have a external hard drive on this computer but I'm not sure exactly about an enclosure? Are you talking about taking the hard drive out of the laptop & put it what enclosure?

You would have to purchase one. They sell empty enclosures to put hard drives in, so you can use usb to connect them to a PC. First you have to know if it is an IDE or Sata hard drive, then I can point you to an enclosure to use.

Or you can use one of these gizmo's to connect it to a PC, similar but no enclosure. This one will connect to almost any hard drive, desktop, Laptop, IDE or Sata
