I've had a problem for about a week and i need help now! Recently a random fake virus scanner appeared on my computer and kept preventing things from running. I shut down my computer and disconnected my internet. After that i started it again and opened Task Manager and closed the application as quick as i could (because it would close it on its own saying it was infected) After that i ran a scan with my McAfee anti-virus and it came up with 2 viruses and deleted them (supposedly). After that i restarted my computer with my internet on. after opening firefox it was saying that my proxy settings were blocking internet connections. I went to options and changed my proxy settings to No-Proxy and it worked. The next day my mom tried to log into yahoo messenger and it says that there is a problem with my internet connection when i know that it works. Now, a few days later a scheduled scan ran, and it said two viruses were detected and deleted. So i thought that they were never removed. So now it says there is an update for McAfee and it wont let me update it, and it wont let me update java, nor open yahoo messenger. Any help would be appreciated and more info can be given.
