Hi everyone! Just wanna introduce myself. the name's Jeremy.

Recently Ive been infected with a worm that automatically opens my internet browser and goes to several random sites. This happens every 20-30min or so, and I joined this site with the hopes of getting rid of it. For those who know what I'm talking about, it would be nice if you can share with me how to deal with this problem.


Edit: Moved topic to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Hello and welcome jeremy007_r, just a few questions
What OS ( XP,Vista etc) are you using
What Antivirus and Anit Spyware programs do you have installed
Also which firewall
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

Welcome to BC jeremy007_r

What OS (Win XP/2000, etc) are you using? What type of anti-virus are you using? Have you performed any anti-spyware scans? Have you tried doing your scans in "Safe Mode"? Are you doing scans while logged into the "Administrator Account" or an "account with administrator privileges"?

You need to start there first. If rescanning in Safe Modes does not help, then try performing an Online Virus Scan.

You can also download and perform a scan with Trend Micro's Sysclean Package.
Be sure to print out and follow the instructions provided in the How to Use System Cleaner for performing a scan.
