  • I have a pc that is infected with the DHL - excel set of malware. I have disconnected it after approximatly 30 minutes online. My Questions are: Was my sensitive information already gathered and sent? If I delete the information in safe mode did the malware collect it and hide it so it can be sent when I do connect to do this scan? What if I change the file extentions? I have tried downloading and running AVG antivirus but it became infected and my pc shut down. When I run the scan in safe mode it only scans command lines, alot of files come up as locked, not scanned. It did find some files that it quarntined but when I start up the pc the problem is still there. What else can I do? How can I download this scan to a disk and run it from that?
