I downloaded the CCleaner and scanned through everything, but when i downloaded it, it installed this thing on my computer called Antivirus Action, and there was no way to uninstall it cause come to find out it was a virus itself. It was stuck on my computer with no way to get it off. It wouldnt let me do anything, couldn't use internet explorer or goggle chrome, couldn't even pull up the control panel. it screwed up my computer. but luckily my gf had a computer, and we googled on how to take it off. and now my computer works again.

Yup, np. Maybe you should let everyone know you followed the majority of this...and let them know the results.

Also, there is that NOD32 link for ya :wink:

Might want to make a change to this part of the CCleaner tutorial:
Now that you've done the cleaner part of this program, time to use the ISSUES part.
1. On the left side you will see buttons and one is labeled as ISSUES, click that.
2. Click ANAYLYZE
3. When it's done analyzing, choose FIX SELECTED ISSUES.
4. You are done. I suggest restarting now and resuming on the next part of this tutorial.
It is no longer called ISSUES, it is now REGISTRY and you click SCAN FOR ISSUES and then FIX SELECTED ISSUES

It's confusing when there's nothing called ISSUES and I though I had the wrong program lol

Also you should update the Ad-Aware part. It has a new interface making the steps (and locations) of the scan different

Azzid... I can't even express how much I love you! My computer was being completely destroyed by several hundred viruses, keyloggers, trojans, spyware, all that crap. I ran the Malwarebytes thing, and now I don't have any problems. My computer even seems faster. They were terrible viruses too. I couldn't use internet browsers, 3/4 of my applications didn't work, I got these fake virus removal popups every 15 seconds, and my Internet Explorer kept opening up to pr0n sites. To use this program, I had to download it on my Linux Ubuntu HDD Partition, then move it into my C: Drive. Thank you so much, man :thumbsup:.

~ Love, Ares

Yeah, probably pinned from back in 06! This should not be pinned anymore. It's outdated.
Noooo way is it outdated. This thread saved my computer, which has over $1000 dollars worth of stuff on it, and is basically my entire life.

BTW, this is my 200th post. I'm so proud!

This thread is still relevant even though it hasn't been updated since 06 lol It's still helping people and since it's a tutorial, it's not considered bumping. I'll try updating some of the steps to coincide with the new apps. Might even add a thing or two.
