If it really is Vista Antivirus, you are infected and need to run complete anti-malware scans.

Can someone talk me through it? I'm not that computer savvy.

See these steps for preparing for a running a HijackThis log. If still having problems after the clean and scan with MBAB, then follow the instructions to post a log.

Hi Clint1354,

I'll prompt you to take the second step recommended by Digerati.

I won't even bother to ask how your machine is running now after that apparently quite successful scan with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.

Why not?
Because when a machine becomes infected, as yours has with trojan objects, there is a high likelihood of other objects lurking in the background to reinstall or install other bad-guy stuff.

The folks over in the malware forum are the people who can help you best.

Start a new thread by clicking on New Topic

The "Topic Title" should contain the name of the infection that you are having a problem with

Please post a new HiJackThis log and the results from theMalwarebytes' Anti-Malware scan.

Tell us if you're having any problems, and please be specific. Let us know what you've already done to fix it.


Do not post a hijackthis log here into this present thread.
We cannot give you any further malware removal assistance from this location.

Here's the thread with information about getting you started in the Malware Removal Forum.
http://forums.whatth...ers_t34502.html

If you continue to have difficulty with your machine "after" completing your work with the Malware Expert who will assist you, then feel free to post back here or with a New Topic at that time.

Best Regards
