I wish the internet shut off before the other night..'cause something bad happened. some spyware or whatever found it's way in here. ever since, my computer is going downhill. my task manager is missing, i can't do certain things...etc. :(

yes, i've tried scanners and such. they're not working.

no, i can't reformat my hard drive.

so...whatever happens happens.

i'm in safe mode right now. my only option at this time. i would REALLY love to listen to my music. but unfortunately, sound doesn't work with safe mode. dammit.

i don't know what else to do.

spats_bear, you wanted to know what Ad-Aware came up with in the results, here they are:
8 running processes
340 process modules
7 modules
65 registry keys
292 registry values
265 files
6 folders

..all infected. tried to clean, but didn't do anything.

soooooo i'm screwed, methinks -_-

BTW!! I'm on Trillian now. on "safe mode"..so i'm on AIM/MSN/YIM..so..i can chat on all those now. w/o prob's. but after i'm done chatting with people and doing my thing, i'll go back to normal mode, just for my music. so until this mess is solved, that's my schedule. (i don't think i'll run PhotoShop under safe mode..it just looks funny)

I'm sorry. Hope you can get rid of it soon. :(

When I did my first adware scan, I had so much more than that. I think I had more than 1000 infected files. Now, I have 2 registry keys that just won't go away. It's hard to get rid of and most of the time, it just brings up pop-ups that I hate.

I use Trillian as well ^_^

Still what Ad Aware did find was a lot. However, you may have gotten a virus, which Ad Aware doesn't take care of. And if not a virus, Windows may be corrupted and will require a reinstall.

i think a did get a virus. called 'vxgame'. -_-

i think that's causing the problems.

i also can't reinstall windows 'cause i tried multiple times. :(

I think you are better off at reinstalling windows for your own good. I hope all is well with you. Reinstall windows and get norton and all of that good stuff will help you out in the long run.

i know i HAVE to...i just can't. i tried before. it's not working. i hate this stupid computer. i want mine back.
