Not sure what cat to put this under...sorry.
Apparently came down with win32/Huer. Ran AVG, and what a mess. Now most of my programs have changed to exe. files that I can't open. Message I get states: "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item." Tried to go in and run as Admin. but wasn't given the option. When I go to the accounts page, it shows me as owner/administrator.
This is odd, but may show how smart this virus (?) is: When I first began to navigate through book marks, it would only allow me to access my financial sites. I'm not even able to access 99.9% of anti spyware programs, and get "error loading page" message. One that I successfully downloaded, turned to a exe file, witch I can't access to run.
Not allowed into any important applications, such as restore or windows programs etc... I want to download HijackThis for a comprehensive check, but can't. I'm hoping to get help with the virus on another site, but for now, need help changing the exe's to .com's.
I'm not computer savvy at all, so please, if you have any ideas that wont put this dang thing at more risk~ Please be very explanatory with what steps to take, and be gentle, LOL...
Thanks so much for your help, and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
