Fake anti-virus/anti-spyware attacks. Please help!
« on: July 21, 2010, 10:17:17 PM »
I have had a few problems with this. I will be on a completely harmless website, such as Youtube and suddenly Java 6 will start loading and then a fake anti-virus or a fake anti-spyware program will open up and I can't open any programs and it will tell me I have hundreds of viruses and that I have to buy their program, or some will even pretend to be from Windows Vista. What free progams can I use that will stop these from attacking me? I have Malwarebytes, AVG, and Spybot: S&D. What causes these? I don't even go on bad websites and I get these.

    Hello, and welcome to Computer Hope Forums!

    I'm Crush but, you can call me Chris too :) and I will be helping you with your Malware issues

    Please note the following information about the malware forum:

    • Only members of the Malware Removal Specialist user group are allowed to give advice on removing malware from your computer. Do not follow the advice of anyone without that user title.
    • From this point on, please do not make any more changes to your computer; such as install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc. - unless advised by the staff I noted above.
    • Please do not ask for help elsewhere (in this site or other sites). Doing so can result in system changes, which may not show up in the logs you post.
    • If you have already asked for help somewhere, please post the link to the topic you were helped.
    • We try our best to reply quickly, but for any reason we do not reply in two days, do this:


    Reply to this topic with the word BUMP.

    • Lastly, keep in mind that we are volunteers, so you do not have to pay for malware removal. Persist in this topic until its close, and your computer is declared clean.

    Now that we have that out of the way:

    Download OTL  to your Desktop

    • Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.

        • Please copy (Edit>Select All, Edit>Copy) the contents of these files, one at a time
