A couple of weeks ago whilst browsing the internet, random popups started appearing every other time that I went to a new page. All of these popups were advertisements, but I soon noticed that they all had another thing in common- They would all go to 'gallimp.com' first before being redirected to a pathetic ad telling me 'I bet you want to remove this spyware! Download Antivirus 2009 Package 1 (Recommended'. Now, I don't know whether this particular 12-year-old behind all this, thinks I'm stpid but I was certainly not clicking Download.

So I googled Gallimp.com and found about '3 results'. Two of them were useless but one from 'BleepingComputer.com' started to be quite helpful. Unfortunately the cure for this spyware was not complete.

Around the same time, Spybot S&D started informing me of 5 or so viruses (Virtumonde) that were not previously detected by my antivirus, or other software I have downloaded (none of which was dangerous)! Sometimes when I think I've got rid of them, the next day it starts all over again. It's really annoying!

So, what I want from you lovely people is some much needed help. :D. Help me get my computer back, virus-free and stop these frustrating pop-ups. I'll start from scratch and follow your advice if that would be better.

Thanking you in advance,
A very desperate bobadob633! :thumbsup: !

Hello and welcome.. Not sure if you ran the MBAM scan there or not so please do and post back the log.

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. 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. MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes, they may alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please permit the program to allow the changes.

The malwarebytes software worked on gallimp straightaway by the additional trick of downloading MBAM with a different name, such as bill.exe. Then, double-click that to install.

Thanks hotfeet. That will help the Application run if the malware won't let it run. It tricks the malware by not reavealing the name of the application.

So although it was gone thanks to MBAM, it comes back a day or so later. I then cleared the System Restore and it hasn't come back so far for a couple days.

Settings > Control Panel > System > Restore tab. Uncheck "System Restore", hit Ok and probably reboot. After the reboot you could turn on System Restore.
