Hello,
I recently picked up this nasty little bug. The symtoms included a "Blue Screen" on my desktop cautioning me that I was infected with a virus and to click here for a removal scan. Also while online I would recieve pop-ups of 2 different types: one was blue with a yellow sheild and a header that stated something about "Security Center....Whatnot"....The other was red in color and basically stated the same crap as the other....Click here for removal....

I did a "Yahoo Search" on this topic and landed here...I read through the topic about using this forum and did all of the things asked exept I didn't load the additional software...Adaware and so on....I scanned my system with XsoftSE, RegCure, and AVG7.5...AVG7.5 found the bugger and quarranteed it...My system now seems back to normal.

I did use your tools ComboFix and HJThis to compile a report after the fact. I would like to post them here for one of the exports to examine them to ensure that I have completly removed all of my problems.

Thanks in advance :thumbsup:

Sorry about not responding...I hung around here for a couple of days but didn't get a response so I moved on to bigger and better things. The answer to your question is XP Home Edition. I haven't had a re-occurrance of this trojan since AVG 7.5 quaranteed it. The only problem that I have now is my speakers aren't working in windows. I have opened up the device manager and double-clicked the devices, windows tells me that they are working properly. I have tried to update the drivers...un-install and re-install the device...I have checked for conflicts. I have went through every item on the help-support section. The only things that I see wrong is if I open up the control panel, click on sounds and audio devices, click on sounds or audio and the message says that there are no devices installed...The dialogue boxes won't even open. It's not that great of an issue for me outside of not being able to hear any videos that I view...Thanks for responding though...I realize that you guy's are doing this stuff on your own dime...

Hello douglas martin,

I'm glad the trojan problem has been sorted out. About the speaker problem, you may wish to post in the Audio Visual forum.
