Wink Re: auto shut down/many viruses HELP

Hmm. I've had this one a while ago.

Basically the malware and trojans are in the form of about 20-100 different fake anti-virus softwares.

Download Spybot: Search & Destroy and run a scan. Then see if it takes off the virus' mentioned.

I'm not sure if this is the one mentioned but I THINK I had it.

Good luck.

AVG will help as well only run in safe mode so it doesn't infect as much.

Yeah scan your registry for changes too, frequently these bastards target it and change your settings and that's when you're in trouble
