I'm running IE6 and I've had this virus for awhile now, but it's gotten to the point where I can't uninstall the certain antivirus program I've been using that rhymes with Ack-a-fee (please do not use this program's actual name as it appears to close IE anytime a page has the word on it).
Basically I've had it for awhile and it didn't bother me because I had ack-a-fee and it kinda was good enough and it didn't adversely affect me unless searching for antivirus related programs, so I let it sit. Well basically my Ack-a-fee subscription ran out and I wanna just run some free AV programs, but now it won't even let me uninstall Ack-a-fee. Everytime anything related to the program opens, it is immediately closed. In internet explorer, whenever I search for any well-known AV programs, it will immediately close the window, and it will also close any windows that appear to contain the names of any well known antivirus programs.
I downloaded Malwarebytes, scanned it, and it picked up a large number of things that Lava's A-Aware (speaking somewhat cryptically so this page doesn't close when opened) missed, as well as a few antivirus programs, but still I have this problem, continuously.
I can't run Ack-a-fee, it closes every time. And I can't uninstall it. I picked up an AV called "Comodo", and it too cannot trace the virus/malware, nor can Lava's A-aware or Malwarebytes.
Does anyone recognize this/know what i can do?
ALSO, I hadn't heard of H-jack this until I got to this website, and I can't open the thread that has any download links I need to provide the logs that a lot of threads appear to request. So I can't post a log, I don't think.
Edit 2 ---
This doesn't just happen with IE6. It also happens with Firefox (kept up to date) and Maxthon.
