Hi, this is my 1st post so please bear with me if I ramble or don't give all the relevent information.
Today AVG Anti-virus picked up a virus called 'hosts' in C:/windows/system32/drivers/etc which it did not 'heal.' I am guessing now that this was a file called 'hosts.msn'
I have deleted this file although, it is still in the recycle bin.
Later I ran Spybot search and destroy and it has picked up 'fakemsn8beta' which it has quarentined , but I am guessing has not fixed properly because I cannot get onto any proper antivirus sites.
I have been looking for help around the web and it seems that I will need to post some form of Hijack this log. I have downloaded Hijack this to create a log for this post but it will not run. It flashes on the screen but shuts down before I can do anything.
Can anyone give me any information as to what else this virus does, or better still a cure that does not force me to format my drive.
