Hello woodyy24,

Do not bump your topic. We try to resolve logs on a first come/first served basis.

By bumping your log you will be pushed back in line due to the new date of your bump.



Download VirtumundoBegone and save it to your desktop.

VirtumundoBegone

Reboot your computer into Safe Mode

Then double click VirtumundoBeGone.exe you just downloaded and follow the instructions.

Exit when it has finished.
Post the log that is created on your desktop called VBG.TXT in your next reply.
Do not worry if you see a BLUE SCREEN "Fatal Error" Message, it is normal and expected.
If I've saved you time & money,
please make a donation so I can keep helping people just like you! You can donate using a credit card and PayPal. Thank you!

same as before. every time i open a new internet page or it switches sites or i refresh it, i get a little window that pops up and tells me i have a trojan and if i click the the ok button it redirects me to a site where it wants me to download explorer defender. and when i use any search engine the same thing happens. every link takes me to the same explorer defender site. also if i click cancel on the little box it will pop up 3-7 times over and over. VERY annoying!

Hi Woody,


We will run ComboFix.

You should NOT use Combofix unless you have been instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert. It is intended by its creator to be used under the guidance and supervision of an expert, not for private use. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again.


You need to disable your Norton Antivirus, SpySweeper and Windows Defend before running ComboFix, as they will prevent it from running.

To disable SpySweeper

1. Open Spysweeper and click on Options > Program Options and uncheck "load at windows startup".
2. On the left click "shields" and then uncheck everything there.
3. Uncheck "home page shield".
4. Uncheck "automatically restore default without notification".
5. Exit the program.

To disable Windows Defender:
Open Windows Defender.
Click on Tools, General Settings.
Scroll down and uncheck Turn on real-time protection (recommended).
After you uncheck this, click on the Save button and close Windows Defender.

To disable Norton Antivirus:
Please navigate to the system tray on the bottom right hand corner and look for a Posted Image sign.
  • right-click it -> chose "Disable Auto-Protect."
  • select a duration of 5 hours (this assures no interference with the cleanup of your pc)
  • click "Ok."
  • a popup will warn that protection will now be disabled and the sign will now look like this: Posted Image
You succesfully disabled the Norton Antivirus Guard.


Please visit this webpage for instructions for downloading and running ComboFix:

Be sure to install the Windows XP Recovery Console in case you have not installed it yet. <== IMPORTANT

You DO NOT need the Windows CD to install Recovery Console!

We need Recovery Console because malware damages a lot and causes an instable system - and because of that, it may happen that your computer won't be able to boot anymore. With the Recovery Console installed, there are extra options present to repair whatever malware damaged.
Also, even though you're not infected, the presence of the Recovery Console is a useful feature in case a computer won't boot anymore because of several other reasons. Read here what you can do with the Recovery Console.

Extra note: After you have installed the Recovery Console - if you reboot your computer, right after reboot, you'll see the option for the Recovery Console now as well.
Don't select to run the Recovery Console as we don't need it.
By default, your main OS is selected there. The screen stays for 2 seconds and then it proceeds to load Windows.


Post the ComboFix log.

Hi Woody,

It is far easier to do it this way:

If on the other hand, you use Windows XP and do not have the Windows CD, ComboFix includes a method of installing the Windows Recovery console by downloading a file from Microsoft. To install the Windows Recovery Console when you do not have the Windows XP CD, please follow these instructions:

It should have given you a message. Did you get that?
