i'm pretty sure i have a virus.  it has hidden my files and also it has dissassociated .exe files.   like when i would try to run my windows media player i couldn't.  i have had to use the system restore frequently.  but it even tries to keep me from using this.  it also has a tendency to even not let me access the web (yahoo) because it says something to the effect that this site could place your computer at risk.  this is a pretty bad virus i've been told.  and not easily found and eliminated.  but i thought i would try this fourm before i have to wipe the hard drive and try to re-install everything.  that would be a BIG hassle. when it happens it uses that legitimate-looking windows explorer shield looking thing.  then it starts trying to do all these scans and wants you to download some kind of security software or something.  anyway, it's all bogus and it's driving me nuts.  i sure hope you can help me isolate and eliminate it.  i have no idea where it might be hiding but like i say i've heard it's a pretty tricky/difficult  one to deal with.  but if you could give it a shot i'de sure appreciate!

thank you for any help you might be able to render.

Re: windows explorer fake security virus

Sorry that you are having problems with this experiment of Dell's. Let's simplify things and have you just repost your log as a New Post at the top of the forum leaving the default Discussion option checked. I'll close this topic.

Thank you.
