I'm having some problems with some spyware that recently leaked onto my cpu and it keeps asking me to get protection from all available sources and occasionally my computer desktop will be taken over by this one screensaver where beetles ( bugs ) are walking all over it.

I don't exactly know the name of the source, I guess I'll post it the next time I see it and look for a name, but I was wondering if I could just post my Hijack This log and if that would help anyone to scan through it and find my problem. You guys were very helpful the last time I visited here, so thanks again in advance.

PS I've already run Spybot S+D and Ad Aware and cleared everything they show.

I run on a Windows XP Home Edition 2002 Service Pack 2.

That pop-up add spam by the way reads like this:

Malware Alert



Adware.WIN32.MalwareAlarm attack! Adware.WIN32.MalwareAlarm gathers
your private data, such as BANKING INFORMATION, passwords and send
it to attackers. Also this fraudware can upload malicious software
to your PC without your notice and make a SPAM. Very high secrity
risk! This process should be removed from your system immediately!

Type: Trojan Horse
System Affected: Windows 98, 2000, NT4, ME, XP, Vista
Security Risk (0-5): 4
Recommendations: Click 'Yes' to get all available antispyware

And I am currently running through SUPERAntiSpyware. Do you want a HijackThis log? Or the log from SUPER?

Um, I ran the scan last night, and it looks like it worked great, I deleted all ( 26 ) threats it found and I no longer have the problem.

But as for the log, today I tried to load the program and my computer can't find the program, almost like it got removed from my cpu. Is this normal, like does it only last for one day with the free download, or did something go wrong with it?

superantispyware; look in your all programs menue? or is there a desktop shortcut?(should be one)

to retrieve the scan result
Open the program and return to the statistics /logs section ; locate the most recent log ; left mouse click on it to highlight it and click the ‘view log’ tab

The log should appear in maybe note pad ; you need to copy and paste that log for examination

it is NOT the type of program that 'vanishes' ..at least....... not 'normally' :thumbsup: :flowers:

also; if not located; see if IS still on board in your control panel ?try finding it in add /remove programs?
