I am running Windows XP Pro and IE7. I have McAfee anitvirus and Windows firewall behind a firewalled wireless router. AFter a recent Windows update, it removed the browser from the task bar and I can not find out how to get it back. Now every time I start Explorer, McAfee alerts that is has detected and removed viruses called "pws-wow", "generic downloader" and "online games." The files are different names but have been mf0824.exe, sl3.exe, db820.exe, sgxlxxaspf.080825.exe, us.exe, and dwbins.exe to name a few. Today it was "123123.exe". I have seen file paths to temp internet files/content/, local settings/temp, and documents and settings/administrator. I also occasionally get a window open for a porn site such as stickytube.com or letusshearch.com.

I have run Adaware and shows no objects. Super Anti Spyware shows no objects. Spybot shows no objects. McAfee Stinger shows no objects.

4. Please visit this webpage for instructions for downloading and running ComboFix:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

Please ensure you read this guide carefully and install the Recovery Console first (not for Windows Vista users !).
The Windows Recovery Console will allow you to boot up into a special recovery mode, in case your computer has a problem after an attempted removal of malware. This allows us to help you. (WinXP SP3 users, please download the appropriate SP2 file, Home or Pro, to install the RC)

In the event you already have Combofix, and you're notified a more current version is available, please download the latest version as described in the tutorial.
It must be saved directly to your desktop.


Note: Make sure not to click ComboFix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall or freeze.

Please post the log from ComboFix (can also be found as C:\ComboFix.txt) in your next reply. :thumbsup:

If you have any questions along the way, STOP and ask them before proceeding !!

Greetings,
Thunder
