I need a solution
Know anything about Rouge.fakehdd, trojan.fakealert and pum.hijack.startmenu?
For starters, the best advice I can provide is to thoroughly read the following article written by Younghv, one of the EE community's very best malware removal experts:
Stop the Bleeding: First Aid for Malware
Carefully step through his recommended procedures, and in the vast majority of cases you will be able to eliminate the virus/malware problems.
miriggall--Concerning Rogue.fakehdd, this site provides info on removing manually.
Concerning pum.hijack.startmenu manual removal
There are many sites discussing removal of the above two malware using conventional antimalware programs, but none seem successful.
(note the warning at the bottom of the page)
Note that malwarebytes claims to remove trojan.fakealert
Run5k's suggestion to read that article and follow it's suggestions is correct.
As opposed to trying to manually remove it yourself, unless you know what your doing you can hose your machine.
(And thanks run5k, I'd not read that article before, but completely agree with it. You don't try every tool known or manual removal first up. you need to stop the bleeding first to quote it :) )
