Hi Dear People....
Thank you for reading my post! I appreciate you!
I'm using my other computer to communicate with you right now. My hijacked one does operate, but the pop-up and accessing windows explorer every 2 min. is getting on my nerves.
Hijacked computer is a Dell Deminsion 2350, Windows XP, It has Norton 2007, with a newer version installed 3 weeks ago (Norton Internet Security 2008).
I did download the trial version of STOPzilla (ran it, came up with malwar/spyware, didn't get full version to fix)
I did buy Spyware Detector v2.0 last night, ran it, it came up with these threats:
Fake Anti Spyware.WinAnti Virus
I ran the recover option on the Spyware detector v2.0, it says everything went successfully.
After all that there are still pop ups, there are three icons on my desk top(the malware/spyware icons) that go away (when I run the spyware) and they come back when you restart the computer.
The malware/spyware has disabled my restore points, and my task manager was turned off. The task manager is now on (I think one of the anit spyware programs have turned it back on).
I found the "Downloader" file, it is in Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Downloader.
The two files in the "Downloader" (malware/spyware) folder are:
qmgro (DAT File) 105KB
qmgr1 (DAT File) 105KB
I cannot delete either. Error Deleting File or Folder:Cannot delete gmgro: It is being used by another person or program.
That's why I tried to use task manager to close it, but it was disabled. I can now open it, but don't see anything running to close that file.
I tried to put hijackthis on here, but it wouldn't let me post with it. It said I had an old version.
I will try and work on it.. It's hard with a computer that is acting crazy...
Thanks so much
