Ok, this is frustrating and embarrassing. I have been supporting computers and networks for years. Security is my number
one concern and I make my living off tech support. This one has me stumped. I am infected by Antivirus 2008. I cant get
a freakin screenshot right now of course just assume that I know what an ad for antivirus 2008 looks like. This is not the popup screen with the fake scan and statistics but similar to a 404 screen in IE. All text in the body of the page but it tells me for more security download Antivirus 2008. Firefox only.
Actions performed so far:
Installed, updated and scanned in safe mode where available with:
Spybot, Adaware, Malwarebytes, AVGfree Antivirus and Antispyware, Superantispyware, Avast, spyhunter, superadblocker, Exterminate it!, Spynomore and a few other things. This crapware is related to the zlob trojan and I have scanned and used other softwares and utilities that have eliminated the virus for me before but I cant get to this one. Every scan comes up clean, but open FF 126.96.36.199 and about 30% of the time I get the window that tells me that I have insecure browsing and should get Antivirus 2008. As soon as I get the next window I'll post a screenshot. As I understand it we are not supposed to post HJT logs in here but a forum is dedicated to just that and I did post it over here.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic183122.html
