New malware pretends to be an antivirus program , infiltrates your system. Started in Oct 2010.
Does not let you launch anything... Had to go to safemode...
Deleted tick off all weird strings from MSconfig startup (i.e. IJHHLUVDLTA)
deleted all "antivirus actions" values from regedit...including weird strings in Startupreg folder area.
All seem ok now except when we type in www.hotmail.com urlfrom IE8 we get re-directed to ..You guessed it Antivirus Action setup page.Tried from Firefox... all ok
IE8 appears to be corrupted. I attempted IE8 re-install...no cahnge...Can uninstall IE8 in XP ...
Went back to IE8 and got into Hotmail via Live mail URL.
I would like to know how to cleanup the poisonned Hotmail URL within IE8
