Hi, I let my nephew on Windows XP computer to let him watch cartoons online, and I think he clicked a pop up and then he installed whatever was downloaded. Now, I have some spyware on my computer. I searched around, but I wasn't able to get rid of them. I've installed Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and scanned in safe mode, but after a restart, it just pops back. Same goes with the cockroach screen saver. It disabled my 'Screensaver' and 'Desktop' tabs form the desktop properties, but I'm able to temporarily restore it with some script I found. Does anyone know a solution to permanently remove both things?

Scanning in safe or normal mode will work but removal functions are not as powerful in safe mode. MBAM is designed to be at full power when malware is running so safe mode is not necessary when using it. In fact it loses some effectiveness for detection & removal when used in safe mode. Please review these instructions (scroll down) and rescan. After performing a new scan, post the log results in your next reply.

Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune & save it to your desktop. alternate download link DO NOT use yet.

  • Click the "General and Startup" tab, and under Start-up Options, make sure "Start SUPERAntiSpyware when Windows starts" box is unchecked.

  • Do not run a scan just yet.

You're welcome.

If there are no more problems or signs of infection, you should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok".
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
