Trojan Virus won't let me open virus protection

Posted: 01-19-2009, 09:25 PM
Earlier this week a message appeared from my computer that i had a trojan
virus. I realized then that my firewall was not on. I went to get virus
protection and what not and had a friend send some stuff. The Virus won't let
me open any of it or go to any site where i can download something to get rid
of it. I'm prepared to completly clear off the computer if i have to but i
don't know how to do that either. Help me!

Download, install, update and scan with the 2 Programs below.
If the infection won't let to do that in Normal Mode(download, etc), do
everything in "Safe Mode with Networking".
All info below.

http://www.spybot.info/en/index.html

Spybot Search & Destroy 1.6 is a very good, FREE Anti-Spyware Program.
Download, install, update, and immunize your System with it.
Then SCAN with it.
Update it, and scan your System once a fortnight.

http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

Malwarebytes is as the name says, a Malware Remover!
For the Free version scroll down their page to either download from
Download.com, or Major Geeks.com

Download, install, and update.

Important re: Safe Mode
If you happen to find a problem that you can’t uninstall / delete, reboot
the computer, and go into Safe Mode.
To get into Safe mode, tap F8 right at Power On / Startup, and use UP arrow
key to get to Safe Mode from list of options, then hit ENTER.
RESCAN your computer with your Anti-Virus, Malwarebytes and Spybot S & D
while in Safe Mode.

If unable to install above Programs in Normal Mode:
Sometimes Trojans, Viruses, Malware, etc stop you installing and/or updating
Programs to remove them.
If that happens, reboot into Safe Mode with Networking (from F8 list of
Startup Options), and install, update and scan from there.
