This is my first post on SWI so I hope I conform to the guidelines (which I have read!).
I am not too knowledgable in the field of PCs or how they work and run so I hope someone can help...
I have Norton Internet Security, Spyware Doctor, Registry Booster 2 and Adware Away all installed and running on my PC. When I run scans the programs report no errors or malicious items - which is good, but I've been getting the following error messages/warnings popping up on my pc over the last couple of days:
Norton AntiVirus pop-up window: Virus Alert (High Risk), 'Norton AntiVirus has detected and removed a virus from your computer', Object Name: C:\DOCUME~1\Bill\...\SVCHOST.EXE, Virus Name: Infostealer.Gampass, Action Taken: The file was automatically deleted.'
At the same time, I get this Windows Error pop-up window: 'Windows cannot find 'C:DOCUME~1\Bill\Locals~1\Temp\SVCHOST.EXE. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search.'
These pop-ups appear together several times an hour. At the same time, the computer freezes for a couple of minutes or completely crashes and I have to restart manually.
Can anyone suggest possible solutions to my problem? I have downloaded HijackThis version 2.0.0. but I can't make any sense of the log - probably because I don't know what I am looking for!
And that's why you should post your log here, so we can help you with it - miekiemoes
I really, really appreciate any feedback! Thanks.
