For the 1st time in a decade somehow I have got a virus or spyware. I have tried everything and still have issues. I can be browsing the web and all of a sudden a new window/ new page opens to some poker site. Also when I reboot & before my win login screen get a alert netsky, I have nod32 system security latest signitures. It found Kryptik. however after cleaning still the same issue. Istalled a dedicated spyware package - nothing found. Researched GZ and seems avast was given a good report, installed that but the problem still remains. Some security suite 2010 keeps coming up automatically scanning and finding 30 or 40 viruses however I never installed that and dont know where this come from. So I need to get it cleaned otherwise its a rebuild

Eset used to false positive on Kryptik.

I would suggest you make sure you have installed all of the available Windows Updates for your computer. Also make sure you select the MRT (Malware Removal Tool) if there are any updates to install as it scans and removes these problems.

Upgrade to Internet Explorer 8 if you haven't already. Try installing Microsoft Security Essentials http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/ it is free from Microsoft and seems to work well in conjunction with the default Windows Firewall.

I would suggest that the "Some security suite 2010" is also part of the malware problem you are having ignore it from a 30-40 virus point of view, but try and remove it if possible.

Tried Spybot Search & Destroy?
See if there are IE plug-ins you can uninstall or at least disable.
Switch to Firefox.

Malware Bytes got rid of that Internet Security one for me on a couple of machines recently.
Give it a shot....

I wish you luck, and IE hijack is always nasty to remove, try Malware Bytes first but it could be a bumpy ride resolving this one.

seems to be what i need once I got this issue sorted, I think I am going to have to do a rebuild to get rid of it and then start using firefox, Seems what ever has infected my machine is quite entrenched.
What grates my chain is that I am so vigilant on anti virus and spybot. somehow one sneaks through and then the flodd gates open

csdanny: also you can tried super anti spy ware it has free edition.


Yep used that - didnt work.
I have decided a clean install is the only way. Lucky I have 2 identical laptops so I have just switched to the other one. However upon a LOT of recommendation I have switched to firefox but there are a couple of websites that I use every day that do not work correctly mainly where there are drop down boxes, more like feilds that are preset with info that I need to choose from but it will not populate the box. this is probably a new thread.

You can use IETab and render those pages with IE engine if you really need to, just install via Add-ons for Firefox.

Yes, I meant switch to Firefox after sorting the problem. I've recently discovered IETab only to find that it does not work for the one (and only one) web site I need it for - an inventory management system we use at work. So for that I use IE and for everything else I use Firefox.
