Dangerous Virus Please Help!!!!!!!!!

ok now i dont know if this is the right place or not but please help me. i have this virus problem, i got this after downloading a keygen i think. anyways, everytime i open internet explorer or click anything on internet explorer this sign pops up and says. (This also happens when i attempt to open any folders)

Virus Below - [USER NAME] is my username i just writ that because of personal safety.



there is a yes or no button.

if i press yes it takes me to an area to download this anti virus if i press no it takes me to another area saying its recomended to download this, and are you sure you want to destroy your pc's health. etc etc

now i think this is just Some sort of Mal-ware.

i have used all my anti viruses to pick up something. but yet no luck i have used

Bit Defender v10 Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Ive downloaded "Spybot S&D" aswell and tryed it. but no luck was found.

so im asking anyone out there can you help me. I know people have had the same sort of problem but they had XP and they solved it using spybot or anti-malware programs. but i used em and nothing has helped me.

Thank you

- A very troubled Vista User

Most keygens are trojaned. If you need to research them, it should NEVER be done on your host operating system. They should only be deal with inside a virtual machine under vmware or equivalent, and a locked down instance of vmware at that.

If you've still got this computer on, you have no personal privacy, in all likelihood. I don't mean to come off as harsh--but you can't trust that computer any longer.

The canonical advice for any potential malware infection is to flatten and rebuild. That is, fdisk, reformat, and reinstall the OS from original readonly media.

Unforutnately, many computers come without DVD or CD backup media, and leave that only on the hard drive in a utility partition where CD's or DVD's can be made from there. Unfortunately as the utility partition is part of a live hard drive, it too can be prone to infection and could possibly create trojaned install media. Not likely... but possible.

Best of luck recovering from your malware infection. I'd strongly recommending a complete reinstall from original DVD/CD media. You'll at least then be able to trust your machine again. No individual point tools will restore your peace of mind, as there's no way antimalware tools can know how to clean the infinite number of variants of malware that exist.

ineedhelp, my dear, dear friend, there was this time, oh, 9/8/2008 12:08 AM, or thereabouts, when you let the following craziness loose on Usenet:

This virus and variants are all over the intertubes these days.

Google and download smitfraudfix.

Unzip it; run it.

Update it.

Reboot into safe mode (hit F8 repeatedly while the PC boots)

Run smitfraudfix again.

Choose #2 (Clean - Safe mode recommended)

It isn't.

IOW a self-imposed problem.

Revert your system to a known clean state - which ultimately means flatten and rebuild - and then reconsider your habits.
