Hmpf.

I decided to format my harddrive due to several software issues, so I backed all of my important things up on another harddrive. When I was done, I moved everything back again, and started installing anti-virus and spyware scanners. Apparently my anti-virus keygen had data loss, so I went to the website where it's hosted using IE, without having installed any windows updates and anti-spyware. 10 seconds later:

''

When it reached about 800 windows, I pulled out my connection wire so it would stop, then did a spyware scan - found 40 infected files with trojans and unknown spyware. I did a virus scan and found 13 infected files, most of them critical system files, such as "Services.exe".
I rebooted my computer to enter Safe Mode, then I got a message saying my CPU was unworkable. I booted with my Windows XP CD, and chose to repair the windows files - "Harddrive not found".

So now I'm on a 8 gb harddrive and a 1GHz CPU trying to fix it %-6


Damn I'm stupid. (Khaos shut up)

Well here's a tip: never enter a cd-key or cd-crack related site without maximum protection.

I got a trojan which downloaded 4 other trojans, which set up an email server on my computer sending out thousands of spam e-mail every minute. I managed to install Norton, which blocked off the e-mail like in the screenshot.

I would recomend using both Ad-Aware and PeerGaudian2.

Ad-Aware has stood me well over the years and I never have Spyware issues.

PG2 is a superb IP Blocker which will allow you to block spyware at its route along with other 'sniffing' activities by the likes of RIAA and MPIA, etc Smile

That's too late now. I already have anti-spyware stuff, it was just that I didn't have an anti-virus software that blocked the trojans.
