Cnet WinRAR download trojan virus trenderdia

by mustangkat - 10/16/08 11:55 AM

WinRAR was downloaded from download.com with a trojan caled trenderdia with a pop-up that says "you will dead next month". Also my internet home page has changed to Microsoft security center - your computer has been attacked by spyware or virus - please download anti spyware now. Any attempt to go to another website sent you to some foreign writing page. I went to the control panel and removed the program and got rid of the program. I then changed my home page back to where it was supposed to be, but still had a problem going to google, ebay, youtube, and I don't know what others. So it is still a redirect problem. I updated all my anit virus, Norton 360, Sypbot S & D, Adaware, and ran them. They found minimal stuff. I downloaded Malware bytes, and Super AntiSpyware. Malware bytes found 2 trojan files. It corrected some, but I still can't go to ebay or youtube. I am still getting the Microsoft security center - your computer has been attacked by spyware or virus - please download anti spyware now.

This is not just me. I did a search on the Internet and others have the same problem and got it from Cnet. I don't have the expertise to go further. Does anyone have a clue or some suggestions. Cnet does not make it easy to let them know that there is a problem with their downloads. Obviously if someone sent them a trojan, they don't care if you notify them.
