I am trying STOPzilla! And it found this Quatim.A worm

http://www.spython.com/spywaredetails.aspx...93-df80650dd3ec

I went there and I wanted to know if that description was true. And If not then what is this worm then? If the description is tur then it would explain why my pc has been weird for the past few months.

A better description from Trend Micro..

This worm propagates via the instant messaging application Yahoo! Messenger. It sends an instant message to all contacts of the affected user. The said instant message contains a link that when accessed, downloads a copy of itself.

Its dropped copy uses the file name YAHOO.EXE to avoid easy detection.

It disables the Windows Task Manager and Registry Editor by modifying related registry entries. The said action adds complexity to this worm's detection and removal from an affected system.

It also modifies the Internet Explorer home page to point to a malicious URL, which may contain malicious files that may automatically be downloaded on the affected system. It also modifies certain Yahoo! Messenger settings that are related to content. The said action allows this worm to download possibly malicious files from the malicious URL.

It changes the title bar of Internet Explorer. It does the said routine to reflect the malicious URL.



Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.

  • 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. Reagardless 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.

Hello again. the "No Action Taken" remarks next to the found malware is an indication that you did not do this step.
Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.

Please rescan and click the Remove Selected post that new log.
Also keep an eye on the notes "Delete on Reboot" that may appear after some of the found malware. If that occurs please reboot.

I believe you,but try it again as we need to see it without. Also it will tell us if it is a malfunction.
