Hi,
I'm new to the site and I'm really hoping for some help. I was recently informed by a friend that he thought I'd e-mailed him the Valentines Day virus. I'm currently running Windows XP, my ISP is Yahoo and my security is the AOL version of McAfee.

I scanned with McAfee - nothing.
I scanned with SpySweeper. It found the usual tracking cookies. I removed the ones I didn't want. It also found something called VirtualBouncer which it identified as a serious threat. I didn't want to pay for the full version. I hadn't decided on which security software I want though I'm leaning toward AVG.

I scanned with Spybot. Spybot didn't find VirtualBouncer. I do have an icon in my system tray now that says Spybot-SD Resident 59461 processes blacklisted. What have I done?

Help please!

HERE:Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log

Prior to posting a HJT log, we ask that you please read and
follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled
Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log.
Following the steps in this Guide will allow the HJT Team
to quickly help you with specific fixes for what may
remain on your system.

Please complete all the steps in the Guide.
If you have performed some of them already, then
just continue with the next. If you can't perform a step,
then skip it and continue with the next. The last step will
include downloading and using the most current version of
HijackThis if the first line of your log does not appear as follows:

Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2

Please note that it is important that HijackThis be run and a log created while in normal mode. If you run it and create your log while in safe mode, you will be asked to redo it again properly. When you have completed those steps, start a new topic in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum as directed in the Guide to post a new log.

The log should be posted in

HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/

Please DO NOT post your log to this topic, or post a log in the wrong forum.

Once that is done, a Member of the HJT Team will analyze your log and assist you with step by step instructions to clean your computer or otherwise advise what needs to be done.

Please be patient while you wait for a reply, the malware removal team is very busy and they will get to your log as soon as possible.

Thanks for your cooperation and good luck.
The BC Staff
