I started getting the popups requesting signing up for the Virus Protection that indicates I have the Generic Prockill.a trojan. I immediately ran McAfee on demand scan and it indicated the virus was deleted, but it is not. I booted into SAFE mode with networking. The other problem is that when booting into SAFE mode with networking, I cannot get onto any websites - the trojan must be blocking this. So I downloaded Stinger from another computer, copied onto infected PC, then ran in both modes (Heuristic High and Very Hight), but still have virus. I have not clicked YES to install the trojan - should I click YES so the Trojan is fully loaded, then run STINGER again? Frustrating - already I've spent (4) hours on this, thx for some more ideas
Moving this thread to the malware discussions home user area.
Can you elaborate on what you see on the pop up windows please?
