A few days ago I ran into some problems with a potential Trojan Horse/malware. Normally my course of action would be to identify the Trojan process in Task Manager, stop it, and restore my computer to an earlier date.
Unfortunately, I was not able to identify the process. Through searching my hard-drive, I was able to determine that the following files were created at the time of infection:
I read your help topics and installed SDFix. This removed the qaszpurn file, as well as other spyware. I also installed AD-AWARE which found a previously unknown Trojan.
However, as soon as I open Internet Explorer, it seems as if the problem returns: pop-ups telling me that my computer is infected and that I should visit certain sites to solve the problem. This was not a huge dilemma as I mostly use Firefox for my internet needs.
Now, as well, when I surf on Firefox, Google search results, as well as Facebook are not loading. It is constantly "waiting on Facebook/Google".
In short, I am extremely worried that I am still infected and am afraid to access critical personal sites (I.e. Banking, etc.)
Any help or comments are welcome.
