  • Hi,

    Your PC may have virus, malware, spyware, I suggest you update your anti-virus software, and perform a full scan of your system.

    Test IE with no add-on mode, check whether an add-on is the culprit, typer internet in the search box in start button, click Internet Explorer (NO Add-ons).

    Patch your system with latest Windows Updates

  • Thanks a lot for your advice & suggestion. Also, apologise for the delay due to involvement in certain personal emergency issues.

    Now, as directed by you when I downloaded & ran the Microsoft security scanner, it shows 1 file got infected "Trojan virus".But unfortunately the technical details were not provided such as file name or path or location nothing! Also it showed that it is "PARTIALLY REMOVED". I deleted it & restarted the computer and again run the scanner and this time also it is showing the 1 file got infected and it's the same "Trojan". Now, how can I get rid of it?

    I ran antimalware full scan as you mentioned it is shwing "clean".

    I ran AdwCleaner , it shown some items are malicious and I cleaned it in the Mozilla fire fox.

    I have already installed Microsoft Security Essential and it is showing clean after full scan!

     Kindly help me to get rid of that "Trojan" virus. Once again appreciate your help.

    Regards,

    Bikram

  • Seems there's indeed a virus exists in your system, while each anti-virus software functions differently, not sure whether it has been cleared

    Have you tried to reset IE as mentioned above, then test the result again, or just tun off IE in "Turn windows feature on or off" in control panel, restart pc, then re-turn on IE as a test.

  • • Ultimately got the success! Upon the recommendation of one of my friend I used Kaspersky (30 days trial version) and it was successfully able to zero on the location of the malicious s/w incognito by pc calculator pro! Previously all scanner was detecting that 1 file is infected but not revealing the location. Now I deleted the entire file itself and run the Microsoft Security Scanner and it is showing "Clean" and now, I become quite confident about the Kaspersky and going to buy the total protection..
    • I understand that the best recommendation should be to format the pc but I could not afford that as I have very crucial data and study mat are there! and if I take back up now, there will be no use as restoring the back up itself the virus can lie in disguise!
    • I am using mobile banking from my android to make all the payments and stopped using banking transactions from pc. I have make mind to go for purchasing the Google Drive online storage for my imp docs, this will become very imp as guys like who needs to travel quite a lot from one part to another part of the country... it's simply not possible to carry all the docs all the time with you!

                      Just wanted to thank you all the guys for the kind support, suggestions & advice...
