I think I accidentally let a male ad into the same screen as a female ad, and they started proliferating like crazy and the mutant offspring are jumping and jiggling and sites were unreadable because of all the offspring continuing their eager proliferation. So I turned AdBlock Plus back on, and the devastation would make even a strong man avert his eyes. The screen images are disappearing as though Stephen King's Langoliers are grinding up the pixels. I disabled it, but it's not like it's spun me back in time.

May I digress for a moment to promote the idea of having an obsessive-compulsive linguist assigned to every software team? It may be the absence of this unsigned member, or it may be me, but I am continually baffled by the secret meaning of most key words. I find them ambiguous, incongruous, or contradictory.

OK -- half my screen is taken up with a list of blockable items on the current page. There's a Search box -- useless to me -- "Filter" somewhat enticing, but on a lower tier, and then under the red closey-button is my paradox: Detach. Is "Detach" good or bad? I have the vague impression that it's bad, because it sounds good -- "release these scripts from captivity" -- and so I probably clicked that button with gusto on the recent occasion where I erased all characters from my main business email system, putting us both out of commission for a week.

I will sit quietly now before I start to confuse anybody else but me.

Hi and welcome I enjoyed reading your post. Now we'll need a bit more information to proceed on malware defestation.
Tell us your Operating system (XP,Vista etc..)
Antivirus and spyware tools that are on board.

Let us start with this scan.
If Vista,Run As Administrator

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on Download_mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart your computer. (see Note below)
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
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. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

Hi! Thank you so much for your comprehensible instructions that worked just as stated!

I copied the list before rebooting as it says.

I have Windows Vista on a HP laptop;
I have Symantec and Norton, both of which clamor to be renewed, they keep scanning anyway
AVG7.5 is my current antivirus program.

I might have other this and that, but I'm not sure.

I really appreciate your helping me with this!

PS (Currently, the results of AdBlock attempt seems to be that I have erased all images and icons from the screen)

Hello, again

It took a while b/c I wanted to save your procedures in Documents, but Word Office wouldn't load. It's fat little square just sat there.
It wasn't even listed on Task Manager so I couldn't end the task.

I went to windows explorer, and there were about 5 items listed as currently running that said windows office, so I terminated each one manually.

Arrgh!

I ran the ATF cleaner, but I'm not sure what this next step refers to or where I would access the procedure

(I can't find ANYTHING on vista!)


NEXT:
After install,setup and update,run scan in safe mode.

That is a note with special instructions for users who have Windows Vista installed. If you don't, you can ignore it and continue with the steps to download and scan with SuperAntispyware.

Oh -- Hi! A new detour! My view of this site has become a little scraggly and hard to process.

I think I missed the note you promised, or it's buried in the collapsed HTML frames. I've been trying to restart in safe mode by randomly punching the f8 key but haven't hit the magic moment in 6 tries. Maybe 7 will be my lucky number.

How much more convenient then simply having a list of options appear like in the old days.
(I do see some at the bottom -- escape key is supposed to show a list, etc., but the list vanishes in two seconds and my frantic key pokes have been unsuccessful there as well).

sorry to bother you personally...but thank you so much for your special info that I couldn't find but I'm sure will appear!

Hello, again!

Posted above are the results of he SuperAnti Spy ware log.

I'm sure they make more sense to you than me.

Thanks for your help -- having someone to discuss such things with eases the frustration immeasurably.

The SAS log shows that it only found cookies.

Cookies are text string messages given to a Web browser by a Web server. Whenever you visit a web page or navigate different pages with your browser, the web site generates a unique ID number which your browser stores in a text (cookie) file that is sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from that server. Cookies allow third-party providers such as ad serving networks, spyware or adware providers to track personal information. The main purpose of cookies is to identify users and prepare customized Web pages for them.

The type of cookie that is a cause for some concern are "tracking cookies" because they can be considered a privacy risk. These types of cookies are used to track your Web browsing habits (your movement from site to site). Ad companies use them to record your activity on all sites where they have placed ads. They can keep count of how many times you visited a web page, store your username and password so you don't have to log in and retain your custom settings. When you visit one of these sites, a cookie is placed on your computer. Each time you visit another site that hosts one of their ads, that same cookie is read, and soon they have assembled a list of which of their sites you have visited and which of their ads that you have clicked on. They are used all over the Internet and advertisement companies often plant them whenever your browser loads one of their banners. Cookies are NOT a "threat". As text files they cannot be executed to cause any damage. Cookies do not cause any pop ups nor do they install malware.

As long as you surf the Internet, you are going to get cookies and some of your security programs will flag them for removal. However, you can minimize this by reading "Blocking & Managing Unwanted Cookies" and "Block Third-Party Cookies in IE7".
