avg free hijacked by virus
Help!!! My Dell xps 140 laptop has been completed hijacked by a virus. It seems to have taken over AVG free. The computer will only run a fake security scan and then direct you to a fake web site selling a fake virus program. I could access system restore only in safe mode but it won't restore the computer to a date prior to the virus infection. It won't let me uninstall or delete program.

Welcome to TechIMO.
Our forum does not do Hijackthis logs. If you would prefer fixing the infection, I suggest you search for a forum that handles HJT logs.
If you simply want to restore your Dell to the factory image, here are the instructions. Make sure you back up your data.
