    Default computer acting up

    so our computer has been fine, no problems at all

    today when i get home i go on a wholesale website for nutritional supplements and start getting retarded redirects. i'm running firefox, avg, adaware and spybot.

    so i call my buddy who is keen on these things and he says download the antivirus software from www.ca.com

    the software said to remove all other antivirus software and those related to such. so, i removed avg, spybot, and adware.

    the ca virus scan said my comp was ok. then i ran the antispyware part of it and it found 3 issues with my computer and said i needed a subscription to remove the spyware. that was ok with me, as i had only paid for the antivirus. i should have just gotten the all in one package.

    so i try to upgrade the spyware part of it, and it doesn't work.

    then i try to browse their forums and my comp was getting retardedly slow and stupid screens started popping up, random shit.

    so i unplug my internet and reboot and here i am. now the computer acts like nothing happened.

    i'm contemplating removing all that ca.com stuff and then buying the all in one package and instaling it and then it should run properly.

    dunno what to do really. it found one backdoor virus and one trojan.

    Did you try the spybot forums? Did you you get the updates for spybot before you ran it? I swear by it. I had a computer crashing and that program/site saved me a lot of trouble. I run it ever 2-3 days and update it before every run. Been running fast and error free for six months since.

    I have used that combo, (spybot with adaware) for many years with great success. I have used AVG in the past but have found that a few things do get through it. I have for the last few years switched to the McAfee all in one security suite that my ISP provides at no charge and with all 3 of those products plus a few others have never run into problems like that. I would try re-installing spybot and adaware with their newest updates and also try Hijackthis. It will scan your computer for any running processes and if you know what to look for you can remove it, otherwise you can upload the log file to their forums and have their members take a look at it and recommend what your problem may be.

    I just had a war with malware a few weeks ago J. Get these three, they all have great free versions. Update, run them, and keep them. I run CCleaner once a week now, and malware every couple of weeks. These along with a good antivirus is all you need.

    Another thing, after your done, uninstall all the java programs on your computer (add/remove in control panel) and install just the latest one. That's a big way that junk gets in, through old verisons of Java.

    I saw those forums. Some are helpful, but I didn't like the idea of uploading a list of everything I do with my computer.

    I've had great luck with Malwarebytes. You can get it at Download.com.
