Hi.
I am in desprate need of help! This week, i think i may have downloadeed a virus in Kaspersky anti-virus 7.0.1. I installed it, thinking it was safe, and it then it stopped me from accessing All Programs in the start bar, It also stopped me from accessing the internet, and has opened strange pop-ups ever since. It installed 3 programs - Error cleaner, Privacy protector and spyware and malware protection. It also stops me from opening the display control panel. I thought this may be related to the new virus 2009 that was on the homepage of this site. it shows a little box where the time should be saying "VIRUS ALERT!" in capital letters. This is actually in the task bar. Can anyone help???

If you're using Windows 2000/XP, please print out and follow the instructions for using SDFix in BC's self-help tutorial "How to use SDFix". This program is for Windows 2000/XP ONLY.
-- When using this tool, you must use the Administrator's account or an account with "Administrative rights"
-- Disconnect from the Internet and temporarily disable your anti-virus and any anti-malware real time protection before performing a scan.

When done, the SDFix report log will open in notepad and automatically be saved in the SDFix folder as Report.txt. Please copy and paste the contents of Report.txt in your next reply. Be sure to renable you anti-virus and and other security programs before connecting to the Internet.

To fix the policy restrictions created by this infection, please open the SDFix folder or download XP_CodecRepair.inf and save it to your desktop. for Windows XP ONLY.
  • Right-click on XP_CodecRepair.inf and select Install from the Context menu.
  • Note: To download the .inf file, go to File, choose "Save page as" All Files and save XP_CodecRepair.inf to your desktop.
  • Then log off or reboot to apply the changes.
Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.

  • 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.
Instructions with screenshots if needed.

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.

Hello again,
Thanks so much for all the help, but this has not seemed to help. I downloaded SpyBot, and MalwareBytes, but there is still a problem. I may just buy a new hard drive, and tell my dad it was because it was too small............

Now that would not be honest would it?

Can you please the logs from SDFix and MBAB for me to review?

Hello again. Thanks for talking an interest in this particular issue! I am not very good, and do not know how to get logs from the two programs. Could you instruct me by any chance?

The SDFix report log can be found inside the SDFix folder as Report.txt. Just double-click on it to open in notepad, highlight everything, copy and paste in back here.

If you followed the instructions for SDFix properly, it will have extracted the files to %systemdrive% - [i](this is the drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix). Go to that folder and open it. Inside you should find the scan results in Report.txt.
