Ok I am a newbie, first post here, and I really need help. I have the ISM virus. UGH. DO not have a clue where this even came from as we are both very careful about our pcs and the websites we visit, etc. Anyway, I have tried various things this morning to get it off, to no avail. I have tried uninstalling the ISM program, and it didnt work, I have searced for various files associated with ISM virus, and they are not on my pc( but of course they are, they just dont come up in search). HELP! Also, I know nothing about hijacks, etc, that I have seen on these forums as I browse, so I really need slow, easy instructions, thanks so much!!

Also now that I have looked back on my pc( was on my other pc at the time posted first post as dh was asleep in room with infected pc) and I have now found internet speed monitor in my add/remove programs, and have uninstalled it. I also had parism.dll which i think is associated with this spyware, and i have deleted it. not had a pop up now since last post, fingers crossed, though i am skeptical so far.

Download AutoRuns and save it to your Desktop.
  • Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there. (click here if your not sure how to do this.)
  • Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.
  • Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.
  • When done scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom.
  • Scroll through the list and look for an entry related to ISMModule4.exe.
  • If found, right-click on the entry and choose delete.
  • Then look for for an entry related to QdrPack9.exe.
  • If found, right-click on the entry and choose delete.
  • Exit the program when done.
Please download OTMoveIt by OldTimer and save to your Desktop.
  • Double-click on OTMoveIt.exe to launch the program.
  • Copy the file(s)/folder(s) paths listed below - highlight everything in red and press CTRL+C or right-click and choose Copy.

C:\Program Files\ISM

  • Then in OTMoveIt, right-click in the open text box labeled "Paste List of Files/Folders to be Moved" and choose Paste.
  • Click the red MoveIt! button.
  • The list will be processed and the results for each line will be displayed in the right-hand pane.
  • Highlight everything in the Results window, press CTRL+C or right-click, choose Copy, right-click again and Paste it in your next reply.
  • Click Exit when done.
  • A log of the results is automatically created and saved to C:\_OTMoveIt\MovedFiles \mmddyyyy_hhmmss.log <- the date/time the tool was run.
  • Please copy/paste the contents of that log in your next reply.
-- Note: If a file or folder cannot be moved immediately you may be asked to reboot your computer in order to finish the move process.
