Last night I was just doing my own thing and all of a sudden my whole back ground turned black and a bunch of icons self downloaded it self to my computer. The wallpaper was just one giant link to a website about something called big brother watching me and that they can get all my files and ruin my life I have ran adware SE, Spybot, and i a few others im sure Dirrty could tell you. I get alot of pop-ups and after running all of theese programs none of it goes away. I will post up a screen shot when i get home from school. I think i have the Big Brother Virus but im not sure what to do to get rid of this kind of deal. I will post up more info when i get home so then i can get screen shots of whats going on.I will put up more info when i get home later. Thanks in advance for the help guys,

Ok so after a little research i found that big brother is a key logger and someone usually has to manually install it. For removal you have to hit ctrl-alt-del and open the task manager. Go to the processes tab and find bigbrother.exe and stop the process. Then run a search on your hard drive for bigbrother.exe and delete the file.

Nope. That happened to me with some random picture of a whale once, and i was so confused for like an hour haha. If nothing turns up on your virus scan or adaware you should be set now :)

Im still getting pop-ups and stuff stil keep re downloading into my computer. Like icons put themselevs on the desk-top like visa platinum card, evidence eraser pop-up blocker, The same 5 icons even after i put them in the recycle bin they resinstall themselve back on the desktop within a hour. And the wallpaper trys to change to the other one but instead stays white and i have to go threw the proces to change it back.

Hijack this is more for advanced users. However if you do run hijack this, If you can post the log up here it would be helpful and maybe shed some light on the issue. As i posted before a screen shot of the processes tab in yoru task manager may be all you need for me to determine the particular issue.

OK if you right click on a process and try to end it. Attempt to end



soft32.exe

ywncdr.exe

all of the iexplore.exe tasks (this will close your browser)


mpbtn.exe

after that see if any of those auto restart, and how your computer runs

also it looks to me like you have no antivirus program running. Try going to www.grisoft.com and get the free antivirus



Additionaly. Search cwshredder.exe on google. Download the exe from the first or second result. Run that program
