trojan.dns.changer

Recommended Posts

I have been gettting unwanted pop up ads. After running SAS the trojan.DNSchanger-Codec is detected along with a number of other files. After completing the removal process and re-booting the system as instructed the problem returns.

Please let me know what to do next! Thanks

Are you scanning with our latest definitions?

len, you could try doing a scan while running in "safe mode".. maybe that will allow the infection to be properly removed..

to boot into "safe mode", reboot the computer and press the "F8" key as the computer is booting up.. that should give you a DOS-looking screen.. then follow the prompts for booting into safe mode..
