Visa Internet Security 2010 highjacked

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Security' started by Nathalie Freeman, Feb 5, 2010.

  1. Hi,
    I apparently got a virus on my laptop. As soon as the internet connection is
    established, I keep receiving tons of messages informing me that my laptop
    is infected.
    A Visa Internet security 2010 window popups, where Firewall and Malware are
    off and it tells me that I have to buy a subscription to get rid of the
    problem. It apparently detects 28 trojan... programs. I ran Avast and
    another anti-virus program. They did detect some trojan programs but did not
    find the cause of the infection. When I try to go on Firefox, it says that
    Firefox is infected with Trojan_BNK.Win32.keylogger.gen
    Can anyone help?
    thanks

  4. Hi,

    I just wanted to thank you both for your help. I had to run the program
    twice and reinstall a new version of Avast but your files definitely took
    care of my problem and the instructions were really easy to follow.
