It started with just AVG-Free giving me notices. These...
Id scan several times a day with AVG and Ad-aware.
Then I got Spybot. And suddenly things went from minor annoyance to desktop crashes, constant interruptions (work windows kept going neutral or switching between themselves).... and a host of small quirks that seemed to shift daily (also, trojans with new gibberish names). ie, One day, opening Internet Explorer would cause a bunch of crap to happen, popups and lags and hiccuping. The next day, closing a folder would cause my desktop to crash irrecoverably. Overall slugishness and lag. Firefox not loading pages, Unable to click things. ...and... oi.... I just want to get on with my work.
AVG and Adaware no longer pick up anything. Spybot does. From looking online, I can see the traces of this Win32.VB.ahq is what ive been seeing all along. I had a svchoost.exe before, but it appears to be gone. I dropped an iexplorer.dll---*lotsofspace*---dbt file in the trash earlier. ...Everything seems to be roosting in the IE folder.
I have screen shots of some funny errors. Like this..
(I understand this is a security/entry weakness from the trojans?)
Teatimer - What is this dll? O_o
I had scanned in safe mode with Spybot with the internets unplugged the other day. But... after my experience with Spybot (it making my system work worse) Im a bit paranoid to go about any more safe-mode scans without some outside suggestions. Im no expert at this stuff. Were it not for this forum, Id go about downloading a bunch of software and cleaning in safe mode.
Ill stop rambling. Thank you for reading. You look like a friendlier forum than others ive seen.
I can post a Hijack scan later. Thanks.
