The title of the video was Dana Jacobson Explicitly Drunk Nude Vidoe (That is how video was spelled)
The link is now dead but it was a media player that was asking to download active-x or something like that in order to view it.
I knew that I shouldn't have clicked on it...I'm a dumba**.....
I am running Windows XP Home Version
Immediately after the malware was installed on my computer, the background of my desktop turned red with a biohazard symbol
that has a message under it saying "YOUR PRIVACY IS IN DANGER!" and under that it says "Download Privacy Protection Now"
The address for this message is file:///C/:/WINDOWS/privacy_danger/Index.htm
Three new icons have also appeared with the properties address of : http:/viruswebproduct.com/shandler.php
There is a continuous popup message that says Download AdwareRemover2007 for free.....
the address for this is: http:/scanner .adwareremover2007.com/2/?advid=1216- Windows Internet Explorer
Early on there was a message saying that my computer was infected with Worm.Win32.Netsky...This has not reappeared in 20 hours.
The Windows Task Manager was disabled "by the administrator"
System Restore would not let me go back to another checkpoint nor could I create a new checkpoint date.
This is what I have done to try to repair but to no avail:
I enabled Windows Task Manager.....This has functioned normally since I did this.
I deleted the file for the desktop background and manually deleted it but it comes back everytime the computor is restarted.
In safe mode with networking and system restore disabled, I ran scans with NortonSystem Works, Norton FxNetsky, Ad-Aware 2007
AVG Anti-Spyware, Hitman Pro. I was unable to run Hijack This_V2 in safe mode but ran it in normal mode with system restore disabled
and saved the logfile of the scan....Its in the Misplaced HJT forum
