I am a newbie, first of all.
Anyway, I only had adzgalore and cpmsky before. I already have a malwarebytes' anti-malware because I used it on the WindowsXPAntivirus2008 and it did took the hated thing off.
So when I ran malwarebytes'.. It found a couple of things , so I removed them.
It seems like adzgalore stopped popping up, but then the next day, there's a warning sign that popped up saying something about installing SUPERAntispyware now! It looks really suspicious so I just hit x.
I also have norton antivirus. but it's almost expired. I ran a scan using that but it only scanned 5000 plus items when it used to scan like a whole lot that that. It did find a cookie, but that's about it. Then I noticed the Norton button on my taskbar disappear.
So i decided to download Ad-Aware2008 and started a scan. I also started up malwarebytes to scan.
In the middle of the scans, a window popped up saying 'unable to open this norton product, please restart your computer, then some numbers at the bottom 8500, 108. But I just dragged it down to the bottom of my screen. I kinda have a hunch that the norton is infected though..
When the ad-aware finished scanning it didn't find anything. but malwarebytes found 17!!!
I've also used ewido internet scanner, it only found cookies. :\
I really wish I could use this Hijackthis... but to use that, I have to boot on safe mode.... Which, I don't know why, but when I hit F8, and then Safe Mode, it just returns to the page before the advanced options and doesn't do anything. If I hit enter again, random things flood the screen, then freezes. So I have to pull the electricity off just so it will turn off.
BTW, I'm using Windows XP.
I also have a question about malwarebytes'.. About the Quarantine, I see all of the trojan agents and stuff, should I Delete them or do something about them?
So bottom line is, how do I get rid of these things?
After the malwarebytes scan, my computer had to restart so I retarted it.. so far so good, no pop ups..
but now I'm just afraid that my computer is not fully clean.
