Help! Is Antivir Solution Pro legit?

Went into a trade me store and now this crap is all over my computer. Download this now or your computer is at risk. Now it's downloading porn!

No, it doesn't sound legit. Does it sound legit if it's downloading porn? You don't need a program to do that, you know.

"Went into a trade me store"? Where exactly do you think you got infected?

It was a bathroom store jing hong. I'm writing from my mobile. I guess i'll have to send my laptop to get cleaned. I did have avast and hadn't updated it which I know is my own fault. I'll be letting trade me know about this store though.

And again in English?

Download Malwarebytes, install, update and run in Safe Mode.

geek_dunedin_ree, Jul 25, 5:27 pm

Lol, it was downloading porn as I typed. I think I might run over my laptop in my truck

geek_tazcsv, Jul 25, 5:28 pm

Homer should be able to sort it out :).

geek_mark.p, Jul 25, 5:29 pm

it won't let me access any websites, keeps saying it doesn't trust the website I entered. Anyway to bypass that or am I royally screwed?

geek_tazcsv, Jul 25, 5:29 pm

You have to download it on another computer and then transfer it over via a USB drive. So find a friend that can help you.

geek_dunedin_ree, Jul 25, 5:30 pm

Thanks for that :) I have another laptop I can use

geek_tazcsv, Jul 25, 5:32 pm

give us a screen shot of this thing eh

geek_drcspy, Jul 25, 5:33 pm

Sorry drcspy, have clicked out of the porn ;)

geek_tazcsv, Jul 25, 5:39 pm

not the porn a shot of the 'program' which has hijacked you

geek_drcspy, Jul 25, 5:40 pm

just use linux then you donthave viruses and othercrap and if you want virus you can run winblows in virtual machine as long as the laptop is not 10 year old .
What you seem to have installed is not antivir as i run that on my winblows from www.free-av.com.
You need to download antivir from another pc to a usb pen drive install and scan in save modewithout the laptop going online.

geek_intrade, Jul 25, 5:56 pm

lets just slow down for a minute. Is the porn any good? , this may not be so bad.

geek_jcmp21, Jul 25, 5:59 pm

It's Malware intrade, Not a virus. Did you read her posts befor dribbling all that.

As for "Use linux". If your going to say that, Check to see if her programsare compatible (Or it will make things worse) and that she wants it, other wise it's another Dumb statement from you

geek_swivel, Jul 25, 6:31 pm

start in safemode f8 at startup and do a system restore, should take care of it. Then once you know its gone, you have to disable then re-enable system restore.

geek_chessman, Jul 25, 6:33 pm

wtf?

geek_little_egypt, Jul 25, 7:58 pm

I'm back!

Downloaded Malwarebyte to my phone, then transfered the file to my computer (about the only smart move I've made today)
So now I seem to be free of the porn, should I disable the malware, or leave it? Also, should I subscribe again to Avast, or which would be better? Thanks especially to dunedin_ree

geek_tazcsv, Jul 25, 9:20 pm

Malware is BAD.

Malwarebytes is the application that gets rid of malware. Leave it there (did you do a scan in Safe Mode? ).

Avast is a good option.

geek_dunedin_ree, Jul 25, 9:25 pm

thankfully -someone- was sensible, i was about to be flippant or sarcastic... or maybe both!

geek_0800xford, Jul 25, 9:26 pm

yes I did, thanks to your advice.
cheers, will stick with avast.

geek_tazcsv, Jul 25, 9:45 pm

Here's the auction number btw
306534374

geek_tazcsv, Jul 30, 9:33 pm

a jing hong bath?

geek_0800xford, Jul 30, 9:43 pm

sure was. if you want free porn, just visit their website with no security protection ;)

geek_tazcsv, Jul 31, 1:39 pm

i doubt it.

i just disabled: popup blocking, adblock plus and no script and i'm yet to see anything infectious...

maybe you went to www.chinesetown.co.nz and clicked on "some thing"

geek_0800xford, Jul 31, 1:45 pm

so where would I have gotten it from perhaps? it was during the visit to their site that I had the attack

geek_tazcsv, Jul 31, 1:46 pm

you [or someone] probably did what millions of people do and randomly clicked on any old thing without realising what you were doing...

if you genuinely believe you got it from there, try emailing the webmaster or reporting it to whoever you report this stuff to

at a guess they accidentally clicked some dodgy ad in internet explorer that told them their system had issues.
