please help what sholud i do now....

Please understand that this forum, as with the majority of Security Forums, is "staffed" by volunteers who donate a bit of their free time to helping others. Most of these forums have few regular volunteers and are swamped with requests for help. Please be patient.

You have a good deal of malware showing there.

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (MBA-M) to your Desktop.

  • DoubleClick mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install MBA-M.
  • Be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select Perform full scan, then click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When MBA-M finishes, Notepad will open with the log. Please save it where you can find it easily. The log can also be opened by going to Start > All Programs > Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware > Logs > log-date.txt.

Please post the MBA-M log - I or another volunteer will check back as time permits.

Cheers :)
