Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Whilst using this site during the early hours this morning was in the process of replying to a subject


    the pc went haywire and picked up fk knows how


    Browsermodifier:Win32/Zwangi - the thing wouldn't let me post / reply or use the browser to operate properly which left me no option to delete everything regarding mozilla ..
     
  2. msr

    msr LE

    Which antivirus are you using?
     
  3. You have somehow downloaded a big heap of malware/viruses - simple as that. The most probable cause is that your firewall is not active and the operating system is in urgent need of updating. Also your operating system and Web browser's security settings are too lax.

    Now we need to find a way of clearing it out as it has modified 28 registry values that will continue to wreck your computer!! The question that needs answering is: Are you confident enough to make the necessary registry changes and file deletions? If you are confident then PM me your e-mail address - will send you 8 pages of instructions. If not then the only solution is to format the HDD and re-install everything.
