My computer is running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
Not 100% sure what happened but I got a virus on my laptop. Never had an issue with this before and when I went to bed last night everything was working normal. I did a reboot before I went to bed and when I woke up this morning IE was open with a ton of tabs, I had 4 alerts from UAC and AVG had a message up about infected files. I was in a hurry to get to work so I only had a few minutes to investigate.
I kept clicking No to the UAC messages but they would never close so I finally clicked yes.
I tried to run MBAM but as soon as I click on the Start Menu, the focus is put on the search bar at the bottom and it just starts typing spaces and I can't click on anything else in the start menu. I can navigate to where the MBAM.exe file and when I run it the program never launches. I try to rename it and we are back to the computer injecting spaces in to whatever/wherever I try to type.
That's about all I know right now. I can't check anything cause I'm posting this from work. Have you ever seen anything like this or have an idea how I can start to remove it? I've never had a malware problem on this laptop before and I've had it a year and a half. I'm tempted to format/reinstall Win 7 Ultime because I just got a MSDN subscription :) But I'd like to have a crack and trying to get around this malware to see what I can do to rid the world of this mess.
