I HAVE VIRUSES ON MY COMPUTER. PLEASE HELP!!!!
« on: May 18, 2012, 01:31:24 PM »
Hi there,

I was wondering if you could help me. I have the following viruses on my machine which I have had for some time and am unable to clear them. They are:

-   JS pdfka – gen EXP
-   Win 32 malab – U cryp
-   JS pdfka – gen EXP 1or I

The questions I have are:

1.   What are these viruses
2.   How serious a threat are they
3.   can they be removed from my computer and if so, how

Please could someone help me on this as I just don’t know how to get rid of them. I have done a back up and system restore, although this has not helped at all.

What do you suggest?

Many thanks

how did you detect them...did you run a scan?
what type of scan?
have you changed any of the default scan settings?
where are they located?    c/......./......../

can you attach a screenshot of the scan result?



JS pdfka  seems to be pdf exploit

Win 32 malab – U cryp....do you mean W32:malob ?
