Had this on my sons compurter. I did some poking around in task manager before it was disabled and found the wallpaper file and deleted it and found the blue screen and restart was a deseptive screensaver file and that infact the computer was not actualy restarting. Like a dummy I started deleting the strange files that would show up in the sys 32 file,but every time I thought I fixed the problems and would restart it would come back. Relizing I was no virus guru I ended up totaly reformating the hard drive and installing a fresh copy of windows and all is fine there. Then to my horror, I clicked on an MP3 download link and it showed up on mine. As with all the other cases, the desktop showed the antivirus warning, and the popup to download XP 2008, there was no way to just close the popup(no red X). with out clicking on the popup I went to system restore and activated it. It worked and I have seen no trace of the problem. A virus scan showed nothing. But a Spyware scan reviled " C:\Documents and Settings\Charles Desmond\Local Settings\Temp\.tt25.tmp.vbs" (fake screen) trojan. Should I delete it with my antispyware or what???. At this time I have done nothing more then the scan.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on 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.
  • 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.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

Reboot your computer, update and scan again with Malwarebytes to ensure everything was removed.

Clean scan. I guess doing the system restore the moment it hit saved a lot of the head ache I read about in some of the other topics. So is this it? If so Thanks for your help and have a pint or three on my.
