[quote=adrian756;2146831]Hi everyone. I have a weird situation,
I bought a new PC, and from about 3-4 days, there is a virus called “Trenderdia” (trojan horse probably)
If I want to view web-pages, through Mozilla Firefox - for eg. if I type in google.co.uk there is a message:
[B]Microsoft Security Center[/B]

If i click on Download AntiSpyware Now, it will scan my computer, the message will show:

“You’ll be dead in next month”
Please help me.
That AntiSpyware thing is a scam for sure.
IF you can still get to other websites, here’s what I suggest (I just rid my system of Trojan Horses of the Generic11 variety that were bundled with legit programs that showed clean on the initial pre-scans with AVG and Spybot S&D) you do:
Download Trinity Rescue Kit, the most recent beta version (3.3, build 321). When you get it, burn the ISO to a CD. Then reboot your computer and go into setup (press DELETE to enter) and under advanced setup options (or whatever section where you can alter the boot sequence of your drives), set your 1st boot device to one of your CD/DVD drives and make 2nd/3rd devices “disabled” with other boot devices set to ‘no.’ Hit F10 to save, then open the tray and insert the CD. If it doesn’t detect your CD the first time (as it didn’t on mine with XP SP3), press reset on your computer, then select the “alternate boot 1” from the TRK list and it should detect your CD and CD/DVD drives. Once to the command prompt with the blinking cursor, type (without quotes) “virusscan -a avg”; this will update the avg command line scanner loaded into memory then start scanning your system when the update finishes. The scan will likely take about 45 minutes, and it will list any locations it finds and eradicates Trojan Horses from (perhaps your Windows/system32 and System Volume Information directories). It will tell you how many Trojans it cleaned and rid your system of. You can then press reset, eject the CD, go back into setup by pressing DELETE and reset your boot devices to their original order, then saving with F10. Then…
Go to www.filehippo.com and d/l SuperAntiSpyware. You can use a utility inside it to boot your computer to safe mode. However, first follow the instructions from post #2 on how to configure SuperAntiSpyware on the scanning before having it boot to safe mode to run the scan. Depending on the number of files on your computer, the scan will take about 3.5 hours (it did on my 1.8 ghz Duron processor machine) and will also clean any Trojans in the registry, memory and files. It’s an excellent program for freeware.
I used these steps to clean my computer of Trojans, so good luck! Hope it works well for you and solves your problem. Of course, it wouldn’t hurt to rerun the AVG from the TRK package after 1 day has passed to be sure, since the more recent antivirus defs should help allay any fears and help reassure you the computer is now clean.
