Hi, I'd be ever so happy if someone could help.
Over the past couple of weeks, I've had these voices speak on my laptop when IE is or isn't open saying "Congratulations you've won a free..." It could be a Nintendo Wii or an iPod nano - it's both a guy and a girl talking. "Who doesn't like free stuff?" it sometimes asks. Sometimes it says "No way!" in a scary voice. I also noticed that in "Internet Options," my Privacy & Security settings will be changed to a unsafe, custom level. Even though I'll change it manually, it changes the setttings right back automatically. I can't even keep movies on full-screen for more than a minute b/c the pop-ups will minimize them. I also get Antivirus 2009 popups and "Spyware Infection Found" notices.
I run Windows XP, SP3. I have CA AntiVirus, SuperAntiSpyware, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and CC Cleaner. I do not run SAS and MBAM together. The CA, MBAM and SAS seem to pick up diff't Trojans (Trojan FakeAlert/Trace, Trojan MSANSSPC, Vundo Variant, etc.) that I always erase/reboot when detected (as recommended by the programs), but the voices and popups are always back when I reboot. I've tried scanning for viruses/malware in SafeMode, doing a System Restore on a normal Windows reboot to see if I could get back to my old settings. Nothing is working.
**I have an HJT log, as well - as I downloaded HJT when I saw that other people had the same problems and had to produce the logs for tech assistance, however I see that there is a special place for that in the forums...so I will wait for a response first from a BleepingComputer team member.
THANK YOU in advance.
