Hello from Croatia.

One of my colleagues made his computer „sick“. AVAST recognized the intruders but they came back all the time. I switched off “System restore”, manually remove files in temp folder and clean it up but
every time when computer is restarted they are back. I also tried to scan with AVAST virus cleaner but there was no success. Pre boot scan made no success also. Do you have any suggestions? The intruders are:
Win32:HoaxAlarm-C (Adw) and

“Start page” was first installed on the computer. I don’t know which websites he visited and what kind of software he installed.

Thank you for your help.

Kind regards from Croatia.

Hello Samwise,

Maybe you get to this thread and download ToolbarCop. This can help you to. If you still have problems send us a HJT log.
