intervalhehehe virus RRS feed

  • Question

  • I downloaded WinRAR and after installing I get unwanted popups of "intervalhehehe".  I deleted explore.exe in C:\Windows\System32.  I removed WinRAR in Add and Remove Programs.  I tried deleting directory  \WinRAR and WinRAR.exe in that directory but will not execute the delete.  How do I get rid of this virus and program?

  •  The same thing happenned to me. I regret that I did not go to the official site of WinRAR. I downloaded from another website, and after the installation, I also got unwanted popups of "intervalhehehe intervalhehehe intervalhehehe intervalhehehe!!!!". I tried the link you have me, Jim, but my computer is programmed in Korean, so it says language not supported. I could not use One Care... Can you help me please? I think because of this spyware, I cannot enter a few websites such as Google, YouTube, and other websites. All I can go to is Microsoft, Ask, Windows Live, and no others. PLEASE, PLEASE help me! I need my computer not only for entertainment, but for work too! PLEASE HELP ME!
