I was attacked by a coolwebsearch and trojandownloader.exe before, then I kept on getting a message saying that I was infected, with the default background as well as the military time. I downloaded the Windows Live Onecare which took care of some of the problems, and I finished off with SmitFraudFix, Malwarebytes, Ad-Aware, Spybot - Search & Destroy and Avast AntiVirus!. But I still have the military time, I'd like to have assistance in removing it.

And as for future reference, what other programs would be useful for removing malwares?

My testing of smitfraud resets mine to military time, or at least that's what I suspect

go to control panel/region options/customize/time and reset to h:mm:ss tt


I like this procedure for bad infection, you need to substitute something else for Vista and the ATF cleaner

Often update and install the programs and then disconnect from the internet

SDFix is another program that works with XP


it's quite powerful and best used only when normal programs can't completely remove an infection

Spybot is great for immunizing/protecting IE but teatimer can be very dangerous

Firefox with the noscript addon is best for surfing to dangerous sites

Using a limited user account is another way to protect your computer especially for other logins

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
