First, I noticed there was a post about half of my problem in the HijackThis logs. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...amp;hl=rustok-n
. It was unfinished though. In the response, the user was asked to download SDfix and use it. I did that, and have the report available if needed.
I noticed this when I went to a porn site (pornhub) which I've never had any problems with. Instead of allowing me to view videos, it gave this message, not in a seperate window, but as a web page:
"Your computer generates an attacking DOS requests at our servers caused by the spyware/virus named 'Troj/Rustok-N'
We cannot provide you with an access to our content for browsing purposes as it will lead to the inevitable crush of our website.
We strongly recommend you to run your antivirus edition and, if necessary, check it for the latest updates available.
You may also download recommended software, which has been approved by a number of our surfers who encountered the same problem and used this software to overcome it.
We apologize for the inconvenience, and hope we'll see you again on www.pornhub.com"
Ok, so I decided to run spydoctor, and when I opened it, it needed to update. When I tried to run "Smart Update" for it, I got this message:
"Update failed. Error downloading the list of updates. Please try again later."
Not sure what to do, but any help would be appreciated. Also, should I use HijackThis? Not sure what it is. Thank you
