OK guys I just found this website so I'm hopping you can help me out. The other day I was downloading some music (I know this is what I get for breaking the laws and downloading crap) but all of the sudden my background changed to the attached file. Sorry I had to attach it but I can't find my paint program all of the sudden and that was always what I used for picture resizing. There is also an icon and a pop-up that is offering me to download SpyBurner to fix the problem.

So far I searched for answers and downloaded a program called smitfraudfix. This program did nothing but waste my time. So if anyone can help me please do so.


OK the file is too big so it says:(forgive the bad grammar this is how it is on my screen)

So what should I try now?

I have also looked around this forum and noticed the hijackthis section. I was wondering if I should do this too. The one thread I found said to get the Adaware and spysomething programs first. I went to the adaware site and you have to sign up for crap to download it so I decided against it. So please let me know if I should just go ahead with the hijackthis or not. It also said to create a c:/hijackthis directory on my computer. I was kind of unsure about this as well. Sorry to be so ignorant on the computer.

Yes MBAM finished its scan and gave me that message. I went ahead and did a full scan since I was waiting around but it hasn't finished yet.

OK I downloaded the ATF cleaner and SUPERAntiSpware and followed all of the instructions on that page.

The search came up with no bad files. So what should I do now?

Even though it is useless I will go ahead and post the log below:

Like one of the leading antivirus companies said, this malware is updated every day and it's impossible to always be able to find or even fix with one program

Good luck

Hello phidelt583,

As you now have an HJT log posted here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/144808/hijackthis-log-spyburner-problem/ you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
