Posted 24 October 2008 - 06:01 AM

I'm getting a "Your computer is infected! Windows has detected spyware infection." message. I think it scared my kids to install the XP Antispyware 2009 crap. Now I'm getting unprompted IE windows opening. I get unprompted Firefox tabs opening. I get a popup that tells me something like "The application won't open because the server is busy". I have no idea what app it is talking about.

I've run SpyBot and AdAware and had hundreds of hits every time but even after I clean it up I still get the same problems. Help?

I assume this is a company computer? In that case... There are a few things that need attention first before we proceed with this..

* You must inform your Supervisor immediately.

This because of:
  • Most company machines are connected into a network at some time or other, and your infection may compromise the security of that network.
  • If sensitive material is compromised by an infection, your company could be held liable.
* Your Company must give permission for us to give you assistance.

This because of:
  • We are not here to replace your company's IT Department. If there's an IT Department, then they are responsible to deal with this.
  • There may be sensitive material on your computer that your company would not want revealed in an open forum.
Also, since this is a computer used at work - the first thing I always advise is to back up important files you don't want to lose, this since malware causes a system unstable and it may happen that it suddenly won't boot anymore, because of the damage already present.

Then, * Please visit this webpage for instructions for downloading and running ComboFix:
