Download and run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. That should solve it.

I've got a couple viruses and the occasional pop up (one of the viruses were from HUKD) that I can't seem to shake off with AVG either but if I install the Malware mentioned, will it cause probs with my laptop because I already have AVG?

I really doubt that... you probably clicked on a link to another website, the virus was not from HUKD itself.

Nah, it was a link someone inserted into the site...other people mentioned on the thread not to check the link because it was a virus but I didn't read through all the comments.

I'm just downloading Spybot, as I used to have it before I had to reboot my laptop and completely forgot about it...should I also download the Malware one as well or is having 3 of them too much?

Joining this a little late...but AVG is cack from my experience please refer to

http://hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?t=409705

where I have provided similar advice to another user about a good setup to have, mallwarebytes is top notch; spybot, also, and I personally would have AVAST over AVG reasons in the above. Also use CC cleaner to ensure you have crap cleaned and backed up registry oh and a good personal firewall, like kerio, or sunbelt...all downloadable free on filehippo.com

Spyware and a virus are NOT the same thing.

You can run your anti virus tool as many times as you like, but it probably wont find any spyware.

An anti virus tool will usually look for, and get rid of, viruses.

A spyware tool will look for, and get rid of, spyware and malware.

You should only run ONE anti virus product on your PC.

You CAN run more than one spyware product on your PC.

Yes to all of that...but AVG has a built in anit-spyware/mallware which is abviously terrible; I am merely suggesting a good setup for a clean and safe PC ion my post not diagnosing the problem

I was not having a go at you (if that what it seemed).

I was merely point out to the poster (and anyone else that reads this post) that saying you have popups (which are probably spyware) and then expecting an anti virus product to find the spyware is not likely.

Many people think they have a virus when they in fact have spyware.

Sounds like a deeply enbedded problem; I would suggest an avast boot scan but I dont think it will help as this seems like a spyware problem rather then a virus; but worth a try; have you tried a system restore to before they started popping up?
#24
Then ditch AVG ASAP and install Avast, I used both on all my PC's

AVG Picks up nothing in my Rapidshare downloads, Avast catches everything ;-)

just to check did you update spybot before you run a scan? similar with malware bytes...I would defo get a good firewall btw then at least you know nothing bad will be attaking your pc while you try sort this out
I use sunbelt personal firewall; works a charm

well thats helpful!

not sure about msconfig; but if you run a boot scan with avast it tends to find and remove things before windows starts up see the other thread I directed you to

Sorry, but thought i'd introduce a long term solution, hehe.

But as said before I find avast more useful than most, also I run Adaware from Lavasoft to detect the things that Avast doesn't. :thumbsup:
