I recently started getting a pop up when opening folders and pages on the web. Almost everytime.
Says " Your computer is infected by an unknown Trojan" "It is dangerous for your system (Critical files can be lost)" " Click OK to download the anti-apyware to clean your system"
That is a Setup.EXE file and some type of adware program. On the scan it comes up with Trojan.Win32.Obfuscated.gx
Associated files it says includes Trojan.BetaDivX.Clicker , Trojan.BetaDivX.Temp and Trojan.BetaDivX.Backdoor

Ive searched these and can only come up with limited info.
On a Google search of these or anything, I get a YouTube porn vid link , an error message saying my browser is HiJacked and other links on whatever my search was. But when I want to go to those searched links, I get either a ERROR Not Found and a bunch of jumbled info OR it taked me to IE Defender. In which it does a free scan and then wants you to also download the Setup.EXE file.

I have a HiJack this log I just did. Should I post it here or on the HiJack This thread?
Useless Norton found nothing.
I did ATF Cleaner last night but nothing
I tried SuperAntiSpyware too. It found some stuff but it didnt fix the issue at hand.

I havent had any issues in a long time. Not exactly sure on this one. But from the little info I got its a bad virus and may erase some info.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. THX, Michel

Please print out and follow the generic instructions for using "SmitfraudFix". Make sure you scroll down to Clean and perform the steps where you reboot in "Safe Mode" and run option #2.
-- If you have downloaded SmitfraudFix previously, please delete that version and download it again as the tool is frequently updated!
-- If using Windows Vista be sure to Run As Administrator
-- If the tool fails to launch from the Desktop, please move smitfraudFix.exe to the root of the system drive (usually C:\), and run it from there.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link
  • Double-click on Download_mbam-setup.exe to install the application. (If using Windows Vista, be sure to "Run As Administrator")
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Acan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • The next screen will ask you to select the drives to scan. Leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".

    Posted Image
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart your computer. (see Note below)
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process and, if asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.

Well, I did everything as instructed and all seems to be just fine. No pop up, no Goolge heist and such.

So I appreciate the help thus far.

Next thing tho is the Setup.EXE and/or Files Secure 2.1 program that was downloaded. I have it on my desktop and in my programs. I tried to remove it in Add/Remove Programs but when I do my options after language box is Close or Cancel in the pop up box. Either take me to the REMOVE box. Whats there to do to remove this? Maybe in SafeMode?

Also any advice on the latest best Ad-Ware and Internet security software protection.
My Nortons expired, useless anyways and always had alot running in the background. THX for advice.

Appreciate the help guys !!

Yes, go ahead and try removal in "Safe Mode".

We will provide protection tips when finished with the clean up.

One of our Moderators found that you posted a hijackthis log here on 3/11/08 while I was assisting you.

That log is now over two weeks old. Are you still having problems?
