Dear The Bleeping Computer Staff,
Thanks in advance for your help!
My computer got infected after I clicked on a pop up message asking me to install some codec in order to view a video. Now from time to time, like every 15-30 minutes or so, I'll have a pop-up screen or a notification at the system tray saying my computer has been infected.
So far I've been seeing 4 different symptoms. I'm still getting them even after I've done all the steps listed in the preparation guide page. The symptoms are as below:

1. Pop-up messeage (in blue frame) as below
Security System Protection Control Panel
Possible spyware infection detected. You need to update PC-Antispyware protection to remove detected spyware from your computer. Click here for details....
THREAT NAMEL TrojanDownloader.XS
To remove detected threat please click here

2. Pop-up messeage (in red frame) as below
File:
C:\WINDOWS\wml.exe
Threat
Abebot
Possible Spyware infection has been detected on your computer by "Security System"
To remove detected threat you need to update your PC-Antispyware protection.
Click here to visit PC-Antispyware web site
Update PC-Antispyware protection and remove detected threats.

3. Pop-up messeage (in blue frame) as below
System Integrity Scan Wizard
Warning: Your computer may have critical errors in Windows registry and file system!
The registry and file system errors lead to computer freezes, system crashes and slowdowns, corruption of files and document.
Immediate system integrity scan and repair is strongly recommended.
To scan your computer for drrors please click the 'Next' button below

4. A yellow triangle notification icon with an exclamation mark in the system tray.
When I click on it it lead me to the bbelow site:

Got the reply from sjpritch25 on http://forums.techguy.org. Thanks sjpritch25!

It has been working fine so far...

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware from http://www.besttechie.net/tools/mbam-setup.exe
Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
Once the program has loaded, select Perform Quick Scan, then click Scan.
The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.(See Extra Note)
The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
Copy&Paste the entire report in your next reply.

Extra 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,if asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.

Hi,

The forums are really busy, that explains why logs get behind. If you still need some help, please start with posting a new hijackthislog in this thread. Don't start with a new thread.
Then I'll take a look. :thumbsup:

Good to hear. :thumbsup:

Please read my Prevention page with lots of info and tips how to prevent this in the future.
And if you want to improve speed/system performance after malware removal, take a look here.
Extra note: Make sure your programs are up to date - because older versions may contain Security Leaks. To find out what programs need to be updated, please run the Secunia Software Inspector Scan.
