Been hit with a virus and heuristic virus
System I use is 2005 Windows XP Media edition, service pack 3, Dell Inspiron 6000
I've been hit with 2 viruses about 3 weeks ago, simultaneously. First is a backdoor.Tidserv virus, security level: High and
Second, suspicious.vundo.2, heuristic virus, security level: high
I didn't notice them until I did a scan a week later when I scanned it through Norton 360.
What has affected it:
well I noticed my PowerISO was not functioning properly so I uninstalled...(big mistake)
One thing I do notice is that it has infected my Internet Explorer and Firefox search engine by redirecting me to different sites, defragment does not work, any spyware/malware programs such as spybot search and destroy / HIjackThis / will not open
I haven't really done anything other than continue to upgrade Norton 360 through LiveUpdate and continuous scans and shut down through cold boots.
I really want to get rid of this viruses immediately and yet I did a lot of research on these and they are very very hard to remove. I need help!!
