Something you all need to know. [Important]

So to make things easier, I'm going to combine my last 2 journals on FA and repost it here to let you guys know what's up.

original:


Yeah...it's happening a-freaking-gain. I dunno what's going on but it's driving me insane.

So...I got on my laptop a couple days ago and AVG notified me that, somehow, my identity protection is off. I check it, try to fix it simply by turning it on. No avail. Then, RIGHT after that, I swear the viruses just swarmed in. It somehow killed AVG. It doesn't do anything at all. And it won't even let me uninstall it. Then I get Malwarebytes right after. It did nothing. Spybot Search and Destroy. Nothing.

Before even all that, somehow, anytime I used a search engine, it would redirect me to some crap that wasn't at all what I searched for. In summation, my laptop got a virus and it's going completely nuts.

I finally downloaded Macafee from Kaleigh's account onto my computer. Twice I've run a virus scan. First time it was like 1 virus and 8 tracking cookies. Today, I did it again and it found 9 viruses and 21 tracking cookies. I felt pretty confident about it. So I restarted my laptop.

...

My keyboard no longer works on it at all. I dunno WHAT happened. I restarted again. It STILL didn't work. I don't get why things like this are constantly goin' on. So if I'm gone for a while, I apologize. BS seems to follow me no matter where I go. o3o

---------------

The addition:

To my last journal. Okay, it's not as BAD as I thought but most definitely stranger than I expected. What the thing is, is that my keyboard works UNTIL I get to the login screen. I can bring up the F2 bootup menu, as well as bringing up the Advanced menu with F8. But the moment it asks for my password to log in, its a no go. It just simply does not work. I dunno what could be causing this or how to solve it. Please, if anybody knows how to work this, let me know. If you know someone or know someone that knows someone, don't hesitate, just tell me because this is something that I need. I'm using Kaleigh's computer for now, but until I get help, I'm totally locked out of my own.

--------------

So, for now, I'm gonna use Kaleigh's laptop, and in the meantime, try to go back to my mom's place so I can grab my USB Keyboard, and hope and pray that it works instead.

its obvious whatever you have penetrated your firewall/antivir and probably switched some things around. I've had a virus that silently replaced my avg with a flash immitation that would constantly tell me its own abilities to remove viruses would not suffice and i should instead install random virus pretending to be a better free anti virus program.

chances are you will never be sure if your system is entirely free of what infected it, so your best bet would be any kind of backup or just to start over from scratch by formating and reinstalling windows/linux/whatever you have

Sounds like a rootkit to me. I suggest giving Norton Power Eraser a try, it's free. Here's the link to it: http://security.symantec.com/nbrt/npe.aspx?lcid=1033 It removes deeply embedded viruses and rootkits that regular anti virus software can miss.
 Another solution I have been informed of is to boot into safe mode and than run programs like Malwarebytes.

Try Avast antivirus..... it's fairly full featured, and the base version is free.... and powerful. once it's installed run a boot time scan(don't ask, just trust me, it works

i have avira and i had never problems with avira o.O
it works together (team) with spybot and tuneup Oo
spybot kills the reg entry and removing the rights to gett new rights or doing anything on the registry, tune up kills the process and blocks the virus process away from the whole system and avira finally kills the virus.
and no, the virus cant reproduce himself, thats impossible without an registry entry and without a running process, the virus pops mostly 1 more time up on the system volume cache and thats mostly the endstation for every virus, he can do NOTHING there =3 if you kill him there once more is the virus history xP

ah yes, before i forget it, i have a full payed avira o.o maybe that makes the difference xD
