Help! I think my desktop is infected!


Recommended Posts

At first, I couldn't open task manager, and regedit, so I thought my desktop was infected. Then I performed full system scan with MBAM (free version), and found 3 infections:

hijack.folderoptions

pum.hijack.regedit
pum.hijack.taskmanager
 
After the quarantine, I deleted them. But now, there is a problem with the Internet. Any browser won't load pages. I tried resetting Internet options in Internet Explorer, and it worked. But after less than five minutes, browsers won't load pages again, which means I have to restore the default options in Internet Explorer again.
 
I tried boot-time scan with avast(free), but it wasn't able to detect any virus. I also noticed that every time I run other applications like regedit, games, etc., it would ask the  my permission first. It wasn't like this before. And by the way, I use Windows 7.

Thank you in the future! :):mellow:
