Hello. My Pc got infected with a Somoto virus. I have an Avast installed and it detects a presence of WIN32: SOMOTO-J [PUP]. Windows is now running so slow and Internet seems to have intermittent connection. Sometimes I can browse the net, but most of the time it doesn’t show anything aside from a blank page.

Perhaps, at this point my computer is heavily infected with a virus. The Somoto virus first appeared about a week ago. It displays advertisements, pop-ups, and other annoyances on the browser. I just ignored it since it only attacks Firefox. I still have Internet Explorer and Chrome, which are working well and not bothered by Somoto.

It was now that I realized I should have remove Somoto virus or WIN32: SOMOTO-J [PUP] on the first time it was detected on my PC. I hope it is not too late. I am praying that someone from this forum can help me remove the malware on my computer.

I am using an old Dell 6400 that is running on Windows XP. Avast is installed with the most recent database.

Thanks
jleague
