some kind of virus problem i think
hi, I have always run adaware and spybot every so often on my computer and i have recently suspected that there's something wrong. for a while my computer has had problems connecting to certain websites. today all of the sudden, most of my applications stopped opening. I have started my computer in safe mode and still I can't open programs. It is frustrating and I tried downloading Avast but the installation file won't open.
please help me understand this
edit -- i researched further and it seems my problem is some kind of spyware/adware named mrtstub. I am not sure how it got in and i have no clue how to get it out. it seems to affect safe mode the same way it does normal.
any help would be much appreciated.
