PostSubject: I think my laptop has a virus......   Wed Apr 04, 2012 10:35 pm

Well, here's the thing. Everytime I try to download PDF files(Haven't really tried downloading something else). It tells me that the file I tried to download has a wrong format or a damaged one. Even files I already downloaded. I tried to run it through my anti-virus, but it hasn't found anything. FUCK! Any useful advice or something?

Delete fucking everything.

Or get a better AV.

Well, I just did an anti-virus run, and although it didn't detected any virus, it said that some files couldn't be analyzed, so probably by saturday I'll have a technician come and see what the fuck if wrong. I'll probably have to format it though.

This seems more likely to be the cause. Try re-installing it first.

Doesn't sound like a virus, but if you download the program MalwareBytes (it's free) and run a scan, it'll find just about anything.

Yeah.

Sounds like an Adobe issue.

The problem with online scanners... is that they LIE. They "find" shit that isn't on your computer.

Fairly sure I have a virus on my PC. It keeps saying that "This website has a weak signature algorithm" every time I go to websites like google. It also randomly opens new tabs. I've run multiple scans with MalewareBytes, and it isn't picking up anything.

Have you tried a different webbrowser. Instead of chrome, internet explorer or Mozilla

I've tried IE, but every time I click on a link through google it redirects me to a random site.
